It looks like being on Orange is the New Black is the surefire way to become a fiancé this fall! After the news of Samira Wiley's engagement broke yesterday, another OITNB actress bites the dust: Laura Prepon is engaged. The actress' left hand was looped through her new fiancé Ben Foster's arm at the premiere of Girl on the Train yesterday — and we couldn't help but notice her new bling on a very important finger.
Even though Prepon, 36, keeps her relationship with her actor beau quite private on social media, People reported in July that the two were in what seemed to be a summer fling. Needless to say, after their red carpet debut last night and a source confirming the news, the two are clearly more serious than originally thought and are definitely headed to the altar.

Now, onto the ring: it's a brilliant round-cut diamond with a thin pavé yellow gold band — and quite the sparkler. Prepon rocked a light pink mani to match her new bling and a deep turquoise illusion lace dress to the premiere, while her man wore a gray suit. From the looks of it, they were by each other's side all night.
The couple met through mutual friend and Prepon's former co-star on That '70s Show, Danny Masterson, who introduced the two back when they were teenagers. This is Prepon's first marriage, and Foster, 35, was previously engaged to House of Cards actress Robin Wright before breaking off their engagement in 2014 and then continuing an on-again-off-again relationship for another year, per Page Six.
Rumors allege that Prepon and Foster bonded over Scientology. The actress openly practices the controversial religion and Foster has been linked to it as well.
While Prepon and her new fiancé are off celebrating, we can't help but wonder if Wiley and Prepon are going to be trading wedding-planning tips over OITNB scripts! There must be something in the water at Litchfield...
