Congratulations are in order: Jack Ryan actress Abbie Cornish is engaged! The bride-to-be shared the exciting news on Valentine's Day that her now-fiancé, MMA fighter Adel Altamimi, had popped the question.

Prior to the engagement announcement, Cornish took to Instagram to celebrate her partner.

“There is so much more here in this pic,” Cornish wrote alongside a photo of Altamimi during a match. “I see a man that has evolved through this life in a way nobody I‘ve ever met has. A warrior. A champion. A believer. A lover. I respect you so much. The light you see is the light you give. Your mindset and patient heroism in this life is beyond... Even though you are running a super charged turbo jet engine on rocket fuel in there! Haha. There are so many lessons that you could teach the world right now, at only 30 years of age, and there is so much more to come.

If 80% of the world was like you baby, the world would be good ; ) I love you. Happy Valentines Day.”

A few hours later, she posted another photo—a close-up shot of her hand, showing off her sparkling new diamond engagement ring.

" 'A thing of beauty is a joy forever' ~ John Keats. ❤️ You’ve swept me off my feet my love. I have been waiting for you. The answer is yes! And may God share this light and love with us forever in his arms. Blessed be this day with you. We’ll never forget this anniversary! ; ) Happy Valentine’s Day to my fiancé," she wrote in the caption.

The actress, 36, shared one final photo, a selfie of her and her fiancé, to round out her night of romance.
