Sofia Richie not waiting for a honeymoon! The newly engaged model took to her Instagram page to share a live series of photos to her 7.3 million followers, and among them was an eye-catching kiss! “Hawaii,” she subtitles the collection of photos along with an emoji of a bright pink exotic flower. In one photo, Sophia, 23, leaned back to a sunset kiss from entrepreneur and star on social media Elliot Grainge, 27, with tiki torches in the background. Sophie wore her hair swept into an updo and wore an airy yellow maxi dress with puffed sleeves.
In the cover photo, Sophie rocks a lavender bikini with a pair of baggy white lounge pants while standing in front of a tree in bloom, while another photo with Elliot makes her laugh in his arms. The rest of the photos are of Sofia and several friends relaxing in what appears to be a beach house, posing with fresh relaxation around her neck. She also included some sweeping images of the deep blue Hawaiian Sea.
It’s a good time for the daughter of Lionel Richie and Diane Alexander to sit back and celebrate. On April 20, she announced via Instagram that Elliot had been dating, along with amazing photos of the actual moment. Elliot seems to have become traditional, free on one knee and surrounded by lit candles and pure white flower petals. “Eternally is not long enough @elliot,” she wrote under the caption to the photo. Sofia’s famous friends were impressed – Gigi Hadid replied to the post with “OMG !!!!!?” while Lily Collins shared a series of emojis with heart eyes and a simple “ahhhhh.” Kurteney Kardashian reportedly congratulated her personally.
Elliot happens to be the son of Universal Music Groups CEO Sir Lucian Grainge, and Lionel are friends with him, having released some of his albums under the label. “There is a deep level of trust in between [Sofia and Elliot]”, told a source close to the situation HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVE. “Their fathers are very close, so she has known him for a long time. Her father could not be happier.” Sofia had previously dated Scott Disick, Brooklyn Beckhamand Justin Bieber.
