Three days into 2020 and we are already adding another celebrity engagement to the list! Twilight actor Peter Facinelli, known for his role as Carlisle Cullen in the film series, proposed to girlfriend Lily Anne Harrison while vacationing in Mexico with family during the New Year's holiday.

According to People, the Nurse Jackie alum popped the question while the couple was enjoying a romantic dinner on the beach. Facinelli's three daughters, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennie Garth, were also there for the moment, as well as Harrison's parents. Photos released by the publication show off Harrison's new pear-shaped stone set on a gold band.

After the news broke, Facinelli shared pictures of his new fiancée on Instagram writing, "A Magical night with this incredible woman. A perfect ending to 2019."

Harrison posted her own message on Instagram with another photo from the night of the proposal. "Bye 2019," she wrote. "Thanks for kicking my butt, making me stronger than ever, protecting my family and hurtling me toward my dreams. Also, not a bad way to ring in the new year with my sweetheart."

A rep for Facinelli also told People “both are beyond elated and are very much looking forward to all that the New Year will bring." Facinelli, who is also known for his roles in Can't Hardly Wait and Fastlane, was previously married to actress Jennie Garth from 2001-2013. He was also engaged to actress Jamie Alexander in 2015 but the couple split in 2016.
