British actress Felicity Jones and her film-director boyfriend Charles Guard are engaged, according to reports.

The Rogue One star, 33, who received an Oscar nomination for her 2014 performance as Jane Wilde Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything, has been dating film director Charles Guard for two years but the couple are rarely seen in the public eye together.

The actress declared herself a 'romantic' in an interview with the Telegraph before meeting her soon-to-be husband, saying "I am definitely romantic and I love romantic stories... It's the dream to have a true connection with another human being."

The star was previously in a relationship with her college sweetheart, sculptor Ed Fornieles, who she met at Oxford University and dated for 10 years until their split in 2013.

More recently, the actress also shared her thoughts on how future motherhood may affect her Hollywood career.

"Fortunately, I feel like we're in a new era, where it is empowering rather than limiting to have children," she explained to Harper's Bazaar magazine. "From what I can see from friends and relatives, women get stronger and more decisive from having children, they don't waste their time doing things they don't want to."
