Kid Cudi says "Happy Cud" is in "full effect" after his engagement to menswear designer Lola Abecassis Sartore.

The two attended this week's London premiere of Sonic the Hedgehog spinoff series Knuckles, which counts Cudi among its Idris Elba-led cast. In photos shared alongside the engagement announcement, Cudi and Lola are seen together at the Odeon Luxe West End, both styled by YSL.

"This amazing woman makes me so happy, she is everything to me and im so excited to share this news w u all," Cudi told fans Wednesday night. "Life is wild, and right when I felt my future was uncertain, it became crystal clear with Lola. Happy Cud in full effect."

Congrats to the clearly happy couple, and may they both enjoy years of happiness together.

This June, Cudi will embark on his highly anticipated Insano World Tour with Pusha T. Joining the lineup on select dates are Jaden and EARTHGANG. The tour follows this year's back-to-back releases of Insano and its sequel, Insano (Nitro Mega). While the next Cudi album isn't expected until 2026, fans have plenty to look forward to in the months ahead, including multiple film projects.
