Taken Star Maggie Grace Is Engaged!


It looks like Maggie Grace has been taken with boyfriend Matthew Cooke (sorry, we had to!). The Taken star accepted his proposal yesterday, and announced the happy news with a few adorable shots on Instagram!

"The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers do not finally meet somewhere. They are in each other all along - Rumi," she wrote alongside a photo of her and her future hubby holding one another, with her new ring in sight. "Matthew Cooke & I are so excited to share our engagement with you guys! I could not feel more grateful to share my life with this incredible man."

All gussied up in a gown and jacket, the actress also posted a photo of Cooke dipping her with the caption: "We're all fancied up for @globalgreen tonight so we thought - let's ask our friend to take a fancy photo!," she wrote and then joked, "Since we've got the photo thing covered should we just elope ?!"

From the looks of the ring, it's an antique oval with an intricate, vintage-looking halo around the center stone.

Cooke himself posted the dipping picture, and another sweet photo of their infectious post-proposal smiles. For the first photo, he stole Grace's quote and added: "She said yes! Happiest, luckiest man in the world." Then, next to the shot of their smiles, he wrote all of E.E. Cummings famed poem, "I Carry Your Heart" — too adorable!
