If it feels like the romance between Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly (aka Colson Baker) was written in the stars, it seems Fox herself would be the first to agree. The actress opened up about her relationship with the musician, revealing that she'd actually been manifesting their union since the age of four in a new cover story for Glamour UK.

If you need a recap on Fox and MGK's love, the two began dating on the set of the film Midnight In the Switchgrass in March 2020, though their first meeting was at a party three years prior. A few years and an engagement later, Fox confirmed in the new interview that her now-fiancé says he took the role in the film to meet her.

"I had a reverse experience where I didn't know why I was taking the movie," revealed Fox. "I just knew I needed to do it for some reason." At a table read, she was informed that MGK was joining the cast, and she felt an instant spark when she saw her soon-to-be co-star, she said.

"I was like, 'Oh, I'm going to be in so much trouble,'" she admitted to Glamour UK. "He's literally my exact physical type that I've been manifesting since I was four. I'm also four years older than him. So, I think I made him. My thoughts and intentions grew him into the person that he is, who knows what he would've looked like or been like if it wasn't for me."

Proponents of manifestation swear that it's a powerful tool, even if it sounds implausible at first. If you haven't yet tapped into manifestation in your own life (say, in hopes of getting your dream job, the perfect home, or your very own "twin flame"), maybe now's your moment to give it a try. If you're unfamiliar, manifestation is a blend of quantum physics, neuroplasticity, and confirmation bias, Rachel Astarte, L.M.F.T., a psychotherapist and podcaster at Self Talk, previously told Shape. Essentially it's diving into your own beliefs about what you want in life and then acting and behaving in accordance with those beliefs.

When it comes to romance, putting out the energy you want to get back is the first step to manifesting your true love. It's something anyone can try, even if they haven't been manifesting their soul mate since they were watching Sesame Street. "Getting what you want in terms of romantic relationships is all about intention," Claire Grayson, a psychologist and personality test co-creator, previously told Shape. "Many people struggle with finding the love they want because they don't know what kind of love they want. Therefore, you need to make it clear to yourself." She suggests writing down want you're looking for in a partner or creating a mood board for visualization. (See: How to Make a Vision Board to Manifest Your Dreams Into Reality)

"You have to believe that the kind of partner that you want exists — and that you can find them," Nicole Moore, love and relationship coach at Love Works, previously told Shape. "Many people block their manifestations of love because they simply cannot see beyond their past experiences to believe in something new and different. They want better love, but they haven't decided on it."

The TL;DR? Manifestation experts confirm that you can use the practice to attract a partner who encompasses what you've decided you want in a significant other. Just keep in mind that finding your soulmate can still take lots of time. Take it from Fox, who's been manifesting hers since she was just a kid.
