Using his own social media site to send his well-wishes, the world’s richest man, 52, commented ‘Congratulations’ with a love heart beneath her confirmation post, in which she shared a cosy selfie with her fiancé.
While Talulah chose Twitter as her method of confirmation, with a selfie alongside the words: ‘Very happy to share that after two years of dating, Thomas Brodie Sangster and I are engaged!’, Thomas took to Instagram.
Alongside a shot of the duo on a gondola, Thomas wrote: ‘Happy to announce that Talulah and I are engaged. Love is all around X’, in a reference to his most iconic role in 2003’s Love Actually, where the Troggs’ track Love Is All Around features.
Talulah married Elon in 2010 after meeting in 2008 shortly after his split from wife Justine Long. They divorced two years later, before remarrying in 2013.

That was then… Talulah wed £180 billionaire PayPal and Tesla tycoon Elon in 2010. They divorced two years later, remarried in 2013 and split again in 2016 (the couple are pictured in London in 2009)
The billionaire filed for divorce in 2014, then withdrew the filing. Two years later, Riley filed for a divorce which was finalised later that year. The couple met at London nightclub Whisky Mist and Musk wooed her by talking about rockets.
Riley said of their first meeting in the new BBC documentary: ‘My first impressions were that he was very sweet, he seemed quite shy.
‘He said “may I put my hand on your knee” and I said, “OK go on then”, I thought it was quite sweet that he asked.’
She continued: ‘He said I don’t usually do this but I’d love to see you tomorrow can we meet for breakfast. So we had breakfast.
‘And at the end of breakfast he said would you come and have lunch with me so we went for lunch. And then he said would you come for dinner.
At the time, Elon said: ‘We took some time apart for several months to see if absence makes the heart grow fonder, and unfortunately it did not.’
Thomas and Talulah, who live in a grade two listed Manor House in the countryside, enjoyed a night out in London on Wednesday where the actress was seen with a dazzling diamond ring on her wedding finger.
They were seen leaving the celebrity haunt Chiltern Firehouse arm in arm along with their cocker spaniel. The actress looked effortlessly chic in an all-black outfit while Thomas showed off his eclectic sense of style in a silk shirt and cream trousers.
Engaged! She was married to the world’s richest man not just once but twice. Now, Talulah Riley is to wed again, this time to baby-faced actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster

The couple went public with their romance at the BAFTAs last March. Their romance began when the Maze Runner actor co-starred with Talulah in Danny Boyle’s Sex Pistols drama.
Their relationship remained undetected until The Mail On Sunday learned that Talulah’s previous romance with Matthew Rice had come to an abrupt end.
The actress and Matthew had been quietly seeing each other in the wake of his 2018 divorce from ceramics designer Emma Bridgewater, to whom he was married for 30 years.
A source said at the time: ‘Talulah and Matthew were on-off for a long time, but it seems that romance fell by the wayside to make room for Thomas…
‘Talulah was dating Matthew right up until the spring, and he’s still a little shocked and saddened it has all ended between them.’
According to a source Thomas and Talulah ‘bought a grade two listed Manor House in the countryside’ together.
While Talulah’s Elon romance was well-publicised, Thomas, meanwhile, dated My Parents Are Aliens actress Isabella Melling for a few years and was in a relationship with musician Gzi Wisdom for two years before finding love with Talulah.
Asides from Love Actually, Thomas has also enjoyed film success in Nanny McPhee, Nowhere Boy – in which he played a young Paul McCartney – and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Elsewhere, Thomas won a new legion of fans thanks to his recurring role as Jojen Reed in hugely popular HBO drama Game Of Thrones and also The Queen’s Gambit.
