Morgan Stewart Is Engaged to Dr. Phil’s Son
Leave it to Morgan Stewart to keep it trendy. The E! Nightly Pop host is engaged to musician Jordan McGraw, the son of Dr. Phil McGraw, the couple announced July 5. Stewart subtly shared the news on Instagram, alongside a photo of herself sporting a cushion-cut diamond ring from McGraw. "Plenty to smile about...," Jordan added on his end.
Stewart is a welcome addition to the McGraw family, as Dr. Phil made evident in her comments. "Robin and I are so thrilled for you and Jordan," he wrote. "So proud to add you to the family! Love you both!!!" On his son's page, Dr. Phil affectionately noted: "Jordan so happy and proud for you and so thrilled that Morgan is going to be part of the family! Good job on that ring!!"
Stewart's engagement ring from McGraw is a four-to-five-carat, elongated diamond beautifully set on a thin, yellow gold band. According to Kathryn Money, SVP of Brilliant Earth, the ring is valued between $60,000 to $100,000, especially given its size and shape. "The elegant simplicity of the ring's design allows the gorgeous center diamond to be the focal point," she notes.
Elongated cushion-cut diamond shapes have steadily gained peak popularity in the last five years alone. The bauble falls into the category of "fancy cut" diamonds, which is also one of our 2020 engagement ring trends as various shapes and lesser-known cuts continue to foster attention. (For example, oval diamonds have seen a surge of interest as influenced by Hailey Baldwin and Blake Lively, while emerald-cut diamonds experienced a wave of popularity with the engagement of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez in 2019.)
In Stewart's case, the former star of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills joins the likes of Meghan Markle, whose center stone on her ring from Prince Harry features the same shape of an elongated cushion, though flanked by two round brilliant diamonds.
Stewart and McGraw's love story has been a long time coming. The couple first started dating a decade ago, only to go their separate ways. In that time, the reality star and her Rich Kids of Beverly Hills counterpart Brendan Fitzpatrick married in a lavish wedding, followed by a divorce last year.
