Meg Ryan Calls Engagement To John Mellencamp A 'State Of Grace'


Meg Ryan says her engagement to rocker John Mellencamp is "a state of grace" and they will marry "at some point."

Last November, Mellencamp and his longtime girlfriend Ryan announced they were engaged.

In a new interview with InStyle magazine, the actress said she's very happy being with the singer/songwriter but will not rush to marry him.

"I'm going to get married at some point," she says. "But for now, this engagement thing is a state of grace."

Ryan said she is now focused on her kids and her career. Ryan has a 27-year-old son, actor Jack Quaid, from her first marriage with actor Dennis Quaid. She also has a 14-year-old daughter, Daisy True, whom she adopted after she and Quaid divorced.

"Now I'm focused on producing. I'm also teeing myself up to direct, and I'm working on a fun e-commerce project with some of my friends," Ryan said.

She added, "But most of all, what I'm ambitious for in the 12 hours a day that I'm awake is my kids' happiness. I just am. I'm either figuring out how to provide for them, figuring out how to say it right, figuring out all those mom things. I want them to be happy."
