Arrow actress Katie Cassidy is engaged to Matthew Rodgers, she announced on Monday, June 5.

Cassidy, 30, who plays the Black Canary on the CW superhero series, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself kissing her future husband. “I can’t wait to spend forever with you my darling!!” she wrote. “I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world.”

The two got engaged in East Africa on the island of Mauritius. Just last week, they were in Mykonos. “I ❤️ YOU to the moon and back @mattyice432,” concluded Cassidy, who guest-starred on Gossip Girl. “Thank you for a magical evening I will forever remember.”

Rodgers proposed with an oval-shaped diamond while traveling the world with his love. Days before the moment, Cassidy shared a sweet photo of herself taking the plunge—no, really—with her beau. “U jump. I jump. #neverletgo,” she shared, alongside a pic of the two jumping into a pool.
