Eeeek! Another cast member from the majorly quotable Mean Girls is on his way to the wedding altar. Daniel Franzese, best known for his role as Janis Ian's BFF, Damian, in the 2004 cult-classic film is officially engaged to his partner Joseph Bradley Phillips. As Damian would tell himself today, "You go, Glenn Coco!"

His proposal story is even sweeter than Cady Heron before the Plastics takedown. According to reports from People, Franzese popped the question in a North Hollywood Starbucks — where the couple actually met for the first time — after having been together for more than a year.

"When they arrived at the coffee chain, Franzese slipped the ring to one of the baristas, whom he had spoken to the day before about the proposal plan," People reported. "And as the barista called out the pair's coffee orders, she referred to them as 'Mr. & Mr. Franzese' and handed Phillips a different order, saying it was a new drink he should try."


But just wait...the story gets even cuter than you could possibly imagine. When Phillips opened up his cup, he found the ring the actor had hidden inside his iced coffee, before watching the love of his life (insert line: "It's not my fault you're, like, in love with me or something!") kneel down on one knee and say, "Since I first saw you here, you have opened your heart to me, and I vow to God that for the rest of my life to honor and protect that heart if you will be my husband. Will you marry me?"

OMG, stop. Just stop being so cute, you two!

The Looking star also told People, "Joseph has given me the best of his heart and I'm so happy he said yes. Finding my soulmate has made all the years I struggled with myself worth it."

Cheers to the soon-to-be Mr. & Mr. Franzese! Think Regina George will be invited to the wedding? We're crossing our fingers.
