Future Mr. and Mrs. Metcalfe! Jesse Metcalfe is engaged to his girlfriend, Cara Santana.

The actor, 37, first revealed the news to Us Weekly on Tuesday, August 16, and shared more details about his sweet proposal, which took place in NYC this past weekend.

Metcalfe asked Santana to be his future wife as they sailed along the Hudson River in NYC at sunset. The star, who proposed to his longtime love with a 5.5-carat ring that was shaped like an emerald, also revealed photos from the special moment.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we couldn’t be happier,” Metcalfe told Us of the engagement.

The John Tucker Must Die actor followed up on Tuesday by posting a photo of himself with his new fiancee on their sailboat from Saturday’s excursion. “What a weekend! Meant to get this up yesterday, but was too busy celebrating,” the Desperate Housewives actor wrote. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my baby!!!🎉❤️😘.”
