As if this weekend could get any better for Brie Larson: the actress made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live this past weekend and celebrated Mother's Day with her mom (who made a guest appearance on SNL as well), which is bucket list-worthy in itself. But, it actually gets better for the Best Actress Oscar winner. Reports have surfaced that Brie Larson is engaged to boyfriend Alex Greenwald after seeing her rocking an engagement ring on her left ring finger! Talk about the best weekend ever.

The 26-year-old's rep confirmed to People that she is, in fact, engaged to the 36-year-old Phantom Planet singer (most famous for creating the coveted O.C. theme song, "California"). She and Greenwald have been dating for the last few years, and he has been her plus one for the past awards season, where most recently she won an Oscar for her acting in Room. In her acceptance speech, she candidly shared that she was "always worried that I was deeply unloveable." Clearly not the case!

To clarify, she shared backstage with ET Online, "I was homeschooled, I didn't really feel like I was part of any group, so this is a really big one for me," she explained backstage. "For a movie like this to be responding so well to so many different types of people all over the world shows that these things that I thought were my darkness, that were my own struggles, that were only mine, are actually everybody's. And that makes me feel so relieved and so happy to be a human."

And according to Larson, Greenwald has been super supportive in her rise to fame, accompanying her to all of the events with pride. Besides the mentions and adorable "I love yous" evidenced in her award acceptance speeches (where he mouths 'I love you back' — swoon!), she recently shared at the SAG Awards, "He's the other half of the equation — how can you explain the support? I mean, it goes beyond anything. He's just my person, he's my best friend."

True to his supportive award season ways, her main squeeze accompanied her to her SNL hosting gig this past weekend (as evidenced by his Instagram of 30 Rock, below). There, the former Disney star showed her acting stuff in her monologue and other skits, including the supportive role in the misadventures of Ms. Rafferty and her unforgettable Stepford wife baby shower skit.

But, as shown by her versatility this weekend, it's clear she's cut out for most acting situations (it's pretty legit to hold your own with Kate McKinnon and Taran Killam, just sayin').
