Kaia Gerber goes ring-free after sparking engagement rumors as she and beau Austin Butler take their adorable dog for a walk
Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler were spotted walking her dog in Los Angeles on Friday.
This is the first time the couple have been photographed alone together since the Time 100 event on April 27 in New York City.
The photos seemed to put to bed rumors that the 21-year-old model and 31-year-old Elvis star are engaged, as it was clear she was not wearing a ring on her left hand.
The Babylon actress wore a navy blue sports bra and a green zip-front hoodie with black leggings and a grey trucker-style hat.
The Oscar nominee wore a gray T-shirt and dark green pants with a blue sweatshirt tied around his hips and a royal blue ball cap on his head.

Kaia could be seen laughing and playfully put her arm around Austin’s shoulders.
The Dune: Part Two actor appeared to be leaning in toward her ear to tell her something.
Kaia and Austin have been dating since December 2021.
Earlier this week, the gossip blog Deuxmoi shared an Instagram that claimed the couple had gotten engaged.
It also implied that the couple hadn’t been photographed together since April 27 because they were laying low in order to keep their alleged news a surprise.
On Thursday night, Austin joined Kaia and her parents for dinner at Roberta’s in Culver City.
Despite their 10-year age gap, the former House of Style host and Casamigos Tequila co-founder have given the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor their seal of approval.
Earlier this month, Kaia’s famous mother told People that her daughter is juggling her career and private life very similarly to how she did in the 1980s.
‘I think that she kind of sees how my husband and I have dealt with it throughout the years,’ the former Sports Illustrated cover girl said.
‘Which is not like, we don’t ever try to, “Oh, we can’t go there because we might get photographed.”‘
Cindy said one big difference is that when she was coming up there was no social media.
Not engaged: These new snaps put to bed once and for all the rumor that the 21-year-old model and 31-year-old Elvis star are engaged as it is clear she is not wearing a ring on her left ring finger.

‘Like anything, there’s good and bad sides to it,’ she added.
‘The good thing is you have direct communication with your audience. The bad thing can be, it’s a lot of pressure and you see a lot of snarky comments on there.’
The former House of Style host admitted she is also learning to navigate the prominence of social media alongside her young daughter but is proud of how she has handled it.
She said: ‘I’m learning along with her about that stuff, but I feel like she seems like she has a very good head on her shoulders and is figuring out how she wants to create that private work-public balance.’
