On the red carpet, E! The News’ chief correspondent Keltie Knight spread rumors that she and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, whom she began dating in May 2023, might be getting engaged soon.
Steinfeld, however, silently dodged the question, prompting Knight to instead ask about the missing wedding ring, to which Steinfeld instead pointed out the stag-shaped ring she wore outside of her right glove.
“I have a cute little doe,” Steinfeld said, clicking her tongue. “No particular reason other than I thought it was really cute.”
Knight continued by asking about attraction to athletic men, but Steinfeld dodged the question by not answering, which made both women smile.
