Malin Akerman played a newly engaged woman in 2008's 27 Dresses, and now she's getting to play one in real life. In an Instagram post on Friday, Akerman announced that boyfriend Jack Donnelly had popped the question and—spoiler alert!—she said yes.

"This sweet and loving man has stepped into our lives and stole both our hearts! I think we're gonna keep him around for a while ;) #engaged #isaidyes #jackdonnelly #family #yes," the Billions actress captioned the selfie of herself and her British actor beau. Both are beaming, and Akerman's engagement ring, a dark stone set in a delicate silver band, is visible in the corner of the photo.

Several of the couple's famous friends shared their excitement in the comments section of the sweet snap. "This match is EVERYTHING!!!" Michelle Monaghan wrote, while Sophia Bush added, "CONGRATS BABE!!!!" Sam Smith, Natasha Bedingfield, Rob Thomas, and Bridget Moynahan also sent their congratulations the newly engaged pair's way.

Akerman, 39, and Donnelly, 31, were first spotted together earlier this year, when they shared some sweet PDA in Puerto Rico in March, according to People. At the time, a source told the magazine, "They are together and really happy in one another's company." Not long after, in June, the duo made their red-carpet debut at the Monte Carlo TV Festival and Golden Nymph Awards, which Akerman documented on Instagram.

The actress was previously married to musician Roberto Zincone, with whom she shares four-year-old son Sebastian (the other half of the "we" in her Instagram caption). She and Zincone split in 2013 after six years of marriage.

In August 2016, Akerman told People that Sebastian takes first priority over any and all romantic relationships. "I'm not really actively seeking [a boyfriend]. I'm just focusing on my son and work," she said. "If somebody comes along, then, fantastic. And if not, fantastic." She continued, "I'm just inviting whatever is coming my way. I always feel like the more you try to control anything, the worse it gets. So I'm just going with the flow."
