Alison Pill is definitely having a newsworthy start to the new year! The Newsroom actress announced her engagement to actor Joshua Leonard on Instagram this past Saturday.

With the gorgeous Joshua Tree National Park in California setting the stage the actress posted an intimate snap of her and her now fiancé's heads close together. The two look beyond excited as the HBO star flashed her brand-new ring in the frame. The caption was just as cute as the shot, reading: "Let's do this, 2015!!!! @thejoshualeonard." They were all smiles as Pill showed off what looks like a stunning princess-cut or round-cut diamond in a popular halo setting. Co-star Olivia Munn was one of the first to share her well wishes with a message reading: "OMG!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!"

Even though they just got engaged, one item on the wedding planning checklist can officially get crossed off: The wedding dress! After spotting her happy photo on Instagram, fashion designer Chris Benz cheerfully commented: "Yay I'll still make ur dress."

Just five days before the engagement news, Pill posted a photo of both she and Leonard decorating their Christmas tree together. If that's not a sign that they were already on the marriage track — after all, spending the holidays together is no small commitment — we don't know what is!

Pill and Leonard began dating in 2013 after she and then fiancé Jay Baruchel called off their engagement.

Congrats to the happy couple! We can't wait to see what's in store for their wedding.
