'Tis the season for engagements. So offer your congratulations to anyone who promised to tie the knot yesterday, including Benched star Eliza Coupe!

The 33-year-old television star's boyfriend Darin Olien (founder of lifestyle brand SuperLife) popped the question with an oval diamond ring held by a delicate diamond-encrusted band. Coupe shared the engagement with her 7,500 followers on Instagram, using a black-and-white image that gives you an up-close-and-personal glance at her gorgeous ring.

The star, who you may also recognize from Happy Endings and Scrubs, captioned the photo, "Giving thanks." In a previous photo sans ring, Coupe wrote, "I am thankful to have found someone with bigger hands than my mammoth man mitts. It's a rare thing. I love you @darin_olien #thanksgiving." Another Instagram image, this one post-engagement, shows the couple blissfully happy with family as they relax at a Malibu home.

Coupe was previously married to acting teacher Randall Whittinghill. The couple divorced in 2013, and Coupe has told various media outlets that the split has inspired her character on Benched. "I used every bit of my personal life," Coupe recently told The Daily Beast about the opening scene of the show, in which she has an emotional breakdown. "I really did just pour it all into that. And I'm on great terms with my ex-husband, but it doesn't change the fact that it's still a divorce."
