Sooo, do we start calling her Mrs. Tanner, or...? Lena Dunham and Bob Saget are apparently engaged (or something), if you're going to go ahead and take Dunham's word for it. The actress just took to her Instagram to post a (proposal?) selfie with Saget, announcing that she's engaged to the Full House alum. DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle, meet your new stepmom!

Think we're just going off a pic of Dunham wearing a suspicious-looking diamond ring? Wrong. Dunham literally spelled it out for us, captioning a photo of herself and Saget with "We're engaged! He said yes!" Umm, what?! TBH, though, if there was anyone to buck tradition and propose to her fella like a total #girlboss, it would be Dunham.

While the two comedians would probably come up with the most hilarious wedding vows, like, ever, we're thinking that this is just a bit of a publicity stunt. Dunham also mentioned on the 'Gram that she and Saget are cohosting The View together. "Watch @theviewabc to see us revel in it," she wrote (with the sacred diamond emoji, no less), leading us to believe that she's just trying to drum up viewers. Sneaky, sneaky, Dunham!

Also, if you're all, "Wait. Isn't Lena dating Jack Antonoff?" you'd be right. Dunham has been dating the Fun. and Bleachers frontman for over four years. The pair previously vowed to hold off on tying the knot until same-sex marriage became legal in the U.S. "The idea of having a celebration that can't be fully shared among all the people in my life and all the people that we love just doesn't really feel like a celebration at all," Dunham shared with Ellen DeGeneres back in 2015. "So, until that's something that everyone can join into with no sense of being left out on any level, politically, emotionally, it's just not something that we're gonna do."

But even after SCOTUS's historic ruling in June 2015, Dunham and Antonoff still haven't felt ready to walk down the aisle just yet. "It turns out that what I was waiting for was not the chance to marry but the chance to think about marriage on an even playing field, in a world where its relevance is a little harder to question and its essence a little harder to reject," the Girls actress explained in an essay for The New Yorker.

Honestly, Michelle Tanner is probably relieved.
