Jason London presented his long-term girlfriend with an heirloom engagement ring when he got down on one knee.
According to E! News, the Weather Wars star proposed to actress Sofia Karstens with a ring passed down by her grandmother.
The couple have been together for more than two years and intend to wed in Vermont on July 16th next year.
London, also known for his starring role in 70s American teen high school movie Dazed and Confused , told the celebrity news organisation: "I love waking up with my best friend every morning."
Last week, recently-engaged US star Jessica Simpson revealed to Us Magazine that her fiance hid her engagement ring in a shoe in the weeks leading up to the proposal.
The celebrity also disclosed that NFL player Eric Johnson had pre-warned the Simpson family – including pop singer younger sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz – in the run-up to popping the question.
