The mental health activist, 42, took to Instagram Friday to announce she’s engaged just over two years after the Linkin Park singer’s death by suicide.
“Dear #Family, I am overjoyed to announce my engagement to my angel on earth, Michael F. I am here to tell you that you can find love after tragedy,” she wrote. “That a death of a soulmate does not mean the death of you.”
She added that her loved ones are supportive of her and her new fiancé.
“My family, friends, and my Linkin Park brothers welcome him to the family with open arms,” she added. “I will continue to honor Chester and continue my life’s mission to make his passing not in vein.”
Talinda married Bennington in 2005. They share three children together: Lila and Lily, 8 and Tyler, 13.
She continued, “To all Suicide Loss Survivors, you CAN be happy again. You CAN have space in your heart for grief, joy, happiness, sadness, and love. Thank you ALL for your continued love and support.”
Linkin Park member Mike Shinoda took to the comment section to show support.
“I’ve already congratulated you both in person, but congrats again, ha! All our love and support!” he wrote.
