She shared a selfie picture on her Instagram. But one thing that was noticeable in this selfie was the huge rock on her finger. That has set people to speculate that she might have been engaged to Paul Knightley. She had said before:

“Of course I’d love to get married, but I’m not some creepy girlfriend who begs her boyfriend to propose,’ Sam told OK! magazine. ‘It was a bit of an ongoing joke between us that happened to end up being made into a big part of the show.I know he’ll ask me at some point so I’m in no rush. We get asked all the time so it puts a lot of pressure on him. We’ve spoken about marriage – it’s definitely on the cards. We’ve said we won’t have any more children until we get married though.”

Her rep, however, said that she is not engaged.

She further recalled:

“Doctors said I might need to have surgery to remove part of my intestine. It was all pretty scary.”

“My body was just shutting down because there was just nothing inside me – I couldn’t keep anything down, not even water,”

She ceased her alcohol intake, followed dietary advice, and was put on antibiotics and steroids. All this brought her disease under control. Over two years, she could taper all her medicines. She went on to state:
