Ethan Embry and Sunny Mabrey are giving their relationship another try, as the couple announced that they were engaged for a second time. The pair had previously been married for seven years but ended up divorcing in 2012.

Making their debut as reunited lovebirds, Ethan and Sunny stepped out on the red carpet on Saturday – a fitting moment given that they were also celebrating Valentine's Day back together.

The couple put on an amorous display of affection, kissing and embracing before they headed in to the Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards in Hollywood, California, where Ethan was acting as a presenter.

Ethan Embry and Sunny Mabrey were previously married for seven years

His ex-wife's old engagement ring, which Sunny had kept all these years, was back on display on the actress' left hand.

Earlier on in the day Ethan had hinted at the couple's reconciliation, as he took to Twitter to write: "Beyoncé is right. I finally listened. Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh oh." The actor was referencing the singer's hit track Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), which features the lyrics, "If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it."

While Sunny, 39, has yet to comment on social media, the actress did reveal her joy to People, saying: "I am very happy and so grateful we found our way back to each other!"

Ethan, 36, confirmed their engagement when he said: "I finally put the ring back where it belongs."

Ethan Embry and Sunny Mabrey divorced in 2012, but started dating again the following year

The pair, who have both starred in drama series Once Upon A Time, first married in 2005 but divorced seven years later, citing irreconcilable differences. Ethan and Sunny then began dating again at the end of 2013.

At the time, the Brotherhood actor said: "We both realised that the past two and a half years without each other was far more difficult than anything we experienced when we were together."

Before meeting Sunny, Ethan was married to actress Amelinda Smith for four years, with whom he has one son, 15-year-old Cogeian Sky.
