Another celebrity couple is engaged! Funny man Martin Lawrence recently proposed to girlfriend Roberta Moradfar. The aesthetics nurse practitioner said "Yes" on Friday March 31st, and later revealed the news on Instagram with a photo of the gorgeous sparkler.

"I said 'YES!' 3.31.2017 marks a huge milestone in my life," the 35-year-old captioned the photo collage featuring two photos of her engagement alongside photos of the happy couple. She included several heart emojis in the photo's caption because, love.

Because we know you're dying for deets about the rock, it's a custom-made emerald-cut diamond ring from Iconic Jewels in Beverly Hills. The band also features an "M heart R" diamond imprint on the side, which adds a sentimental touch. According to TMZ, the stone is about 5 carats and worth $500,000. Nicely done, Mr. Lawrence.

According to the Los Angeles Times, this would be the Bad Boys' star's third marriage. His first marriage was to beauty pageant queen Patricia Southhall from 1995 to 1997, with whom he shares daughter Jasmine Page Lawrence. Later in 2010, Lawrence married Shamicka Gibbs for at least two years. He shares daughters Iyanna Faith, 16, and Amara Trinity, 14, with Gibbs. Now, it looks like the third's time's a charm!

It's a great week for Hollywood's newly betrothed couples. John Cena also proposed to longtime girlfriend Nikki Bella during Sunday night's Wrestlemania 33. The unexpected engagement came shortly after the couple defeated The Miz and wife Maryse in a mixed tag-team match. Cena recalled Bella's neck surgery last year as he dropped down on one knee.

“Right before your surgery, there would be a time when you would be a little loopy and I could ask you anything I wanted. If you gave me an honest answer, you wouldn’t remember what you said. After a year and half, you asked me all the time. I promised I would tell you when the time is right. The time is right."

Congrats all around!
