Morgana is a talented jewelry designer, and in a 2012 interview with Elle, Charlie shared details about the ring she made for him. "She told me she was making me a diamond encrusted ring," he said. "And I was like 'Uh-oh. This is not going to go well for me.' But I love it. It's so discrete and beautiful.”

Through a Facebook fan page run by a friend, Charlie spoke out in March to ask fans to be kind to his girlfriend on social media. Although it's unfortunate that he had to convey that in the first place, Charlie did have some really caring things to say about her in his message. “This is a girl I love very much and have spent the last 11 years of my life with and hope to spend the next 60 years," he said, adding, "She has been my loyal and supportive partner long before I had any success or money.”
