Congratulations are in order for The Young and the Restless costars Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause! The actors announced that they are getting married, sharing the happy engagement news on Instagram over the weekend. And, spoiler, her engagement ring is just plain gorgeous.
After first confirming they were dating back in January 2014, Hartley, 39, and his 35-year-old costar Stause (née Terrina Chrishell Stause) have shared that they are taking their relationship to a new level, according to Just Jared. In true ring selfie-loving fashion, the soap opera star and bride-to-be took to social media to announce her exciting news.
"You guys think I need sunscreen..?... @justinhartley" she posted on Instagram, which was quickly followed by some emoji necessities when announcing your engagement — a diamond ring and heart eyes. The former All My Children actress then tweeted, "Such a happy time. Thanks for all the well wishes guys! So sweet," after receiving excited fan replies regarding the announcement.
In the photo, her ring is on display front-and-center while she appears to be lounging on the beach, and it's clear her hubby-to-be did some MAJ diamond research as it is quite the stunner! The new forever bling boasts a sparkly emerald-cut diamond with a pave band, and Stause was rocking light pink manicure with glittery nail tips. It's unclear if Stausel already had her nails ready to go pre-proposal or if she got a fresh mani to show off her engagement ring, but either way, we need sunglasses for that rock.
The newly engaged TV stars both have lengthy resumes when it comes to their acting careers. Hartley has starred in quite the lineup of television shows, including Passions, Revenge, and Smallville. This fall, he'll be featured in NBC's much-awaited This is Us series about relationships and love, reports CBS8. His wife-to-be has also graced the small screen in numerous soap operas — All My Children * Days of Our Lives*, and The Young and the Restless being the most recent (she joined the cast in May 2016).
For Hartley, this will be a second marriage. The actor was previously married to his Passions co-star Lindsay Korman from 2004 to 2012 with whom he has a 12-year-old daughter. While it's unclear if his ex approves of Hartley's new love, his bride-to-be shared an interesting tidbit about her only run-in with his ex-wife. "My very first job ever, I was an extra on Passions for one day and it was a scene where [Lindsay's] now husband [Justin] and another guy were fighting over her," Chrishell said in an interview a few years ago, Just Jared dished in 2014. "I was slow dancing in the background, so technically I haven't met her, but I have shared spaced with her." Slightly awkward, but we're hoping that everyone is as happy for the newly-engaged couple as we are. Congrats, you two; see below for photos of Stause's stunning bling.
