'Girls' star sparks engagement rumours

Lena Dunham has sparked rumours she is engaged.

The 'Girls' creator has been dating Jack Antonoff from the group fun. since 2012, but speculation they have taken their relationship to the next level has been increasing in the past week as she has been spotted on several occasions wearing a band on her ring finger.

After moving in with each other last year, the 28-year-old actress admitted marriage was something they had considered, but was not something they wanted to embark on until her lesbian sister, Grace, was able to get hitched.

She said: "We're not against marriage, but I want to wait until it's something - my sister's gay and it just doesn't feel good to me to do something she can't do.

"She can do it in some places but not all places."

However, the couple have certainly been growing closer in the past year, with Lena describing the 30-year-old musician - who is also in the band Bleachers - as her "life partner" and explaining how he has made her feel more stable and mature.
