Corinne has been dating Joe since 2018, according to Page Six.
Corinne has kept the relationship mostly off social media, though has shared a few snaps chronicling their relationship.
The first post she appeared to share of them was from back in 2019. The couple were enjoying a day at the stables together.
‘Spent the weekend with a couple of studs,’ Corinne captioned the post.
The engagement comes after Corinne’s father Jamie overcame a life-threatening medical emergency.
Last week, he posted a heartfelt message to fans about celebrating his ‘special’ birthday after the ordeal.
‘I wanna start by saying thank you to everyone that prayed for me when I was in a bad way… here lately I’ve been able to thank some of you personally but I want to say to all of you,’ he wrote on Instagram.
The actor continued: ‘I NEEDED EVERY PRAYER… you lifted me through… I was able to make it to today because of your prayers.’
‘I consider all of you my family… and thank you to my immediate family, and everybody who chipped in to make sure that I could celebrate on this day… I’m sending our complete joy to everybody… Cause if it’s my birthday it’s your birthday,’ he said.

During his first public appearance since the shock health scare, an emotional Jamie revealed he ‘saw the tunnel but not the light’ as he opened up about his near-dear experience at the Critics’ Choice Association’s event earlier this month.
Foxx admitted that he could not ‘walk’ six months earlier, via Deadline, though he refrained from revealing too many details about the medical crisis that put him in the hospital.
‘You know, it’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago,’ he said after strutting across the stage to the microphone. ‘I couldn’t actually walk.’
‘I want to thanks everybody. I’ve been through something, I’ve been through some things,’ he said to thunderous applause.
‘I cherish every single minute now — it’s different,’ he continued. ‘I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over … when you see the tunnel. I saw the tunnel — I didn’t see the light.

‘It was hot in that tunnel too, I don’t know where I was going. ‘S**t, am I going to the right place?’”
In his 12-minute speech, he also made light of some of the baseless conspiracy theories that spread while he was hospitalized and then out of the public eye for several months.
‘I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people who was saying I was cloned out there.’
‘I have a new respect for life. I have a new respect for my art,’ he added toward the end of his speech.
Foxx also shared his praise and thanks for his family, including his sister and daughter, for how they had helped to care for him while he was recuperating.
