Russell Tovey is getting married! The Quantico actor and his boyfriend, rugby player Steve Brockman, confirmed their engagement on Monday evening. Pop the champagne—we've got ourselves a celebration on our hands!

Tovey revealed the nuptial news to The Daily Mail, telling the tabloid that the engagement was "completely unexpected, but very very happy" and that he and his new fiancé are "looking forward to having a proper party to celebrate when back in London."

Though the two didn't reveal exactly when they started dating, the couple started showing up on each other's social media accounts last summer and have been going strong since. Tovey recently shared a photo of himself and Brockman with their dogs together in East Hampton on Saturday—a post-engagement getaway, perhaps?

Brockman moved to the U.S. to live with Tovey back in 2017, when the actor was starring in New York's National Theatre show Angels In America with Andrew Garfield. Brockman is a former member of London's Kings Cross Steelers rugby team, the first ever gay-inclusive rugby union club.

Although the two just broke their engagement news, Tovey has known for a while that he's ready to tie the knot. When the Being Human actor was asked back in 2016 about the potential for marriage, Tovey was all for it. "Totally, 100 percent I will do it, when the time is right," he told the London Evening Standard at the time.

As for having kids in the future? "Yeah, all of it," he added to the newspaper. "But I've got my dog at the minute—he's my everything, my sun and my moon and my mate."

Tovey is best known for his role as George Sands in the British comedy series Being Human. He has also starred in a variety of other TV shows including Quantico, Him & Her, and Looking.

Congrats to this adorable couple!
