Alec Baldwin is getting a new sister-in-law! The actor's younger brother, fellow actor Daniel Baldwin, is engaged to his entrepreneur girlfriend Robin Sue Hertz Hempel, after proposing at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival on Saturday.

Daniel told People that he "slipped the ring into a glass of cranberry juice" to surprise his now-fiancée, whom he has dated for a year. "Upon finding the ring amongst the ice, Robin exclaimed, 'Yes!'" It's no wonder she was so delighted — Daniel designed the custom engagement ring, featuring a marquise-cut diamond flanked by baguettes, which total about five carats. We're sure that piece of ice stood out from the others!

"I couldn't be more overjoyed Robin said yes," the second-oldest of the Baldwin brothers told People of his betrothal. "Next to the birth of my children, this is the happiest day of my life." Daniel is father to five children from previous relationship.

Daniel and Robin were in Fort Lauderdale to promote his latest movie, The Wisdom to Know the Difference, which he stars in and directed. Aside from being part of the famed acting family, Daniel is also known for his role as Detective Beau Felton in the NBC series Homicide: Life on the Street.
