Downton Abbey‘s Allen Leech is engaged. The Irish star, best known for his portrayal as Tom Branson on the beloved PBS period drama, very quietly revealed his engagement to Jessica Blair Herman on Valentine’s Day.

Leech took to Instagram to celebrate the love-filled holiday on February 14. “Happy Valentine’s Day @jessicablairherman,” Leech captioned a pic with his bride-to-be. “First one as a fiancé! Thank you for saying yes and for making me the happiest.”

The actor, however, added a disclaimer to the post. “No, I didn’t do it today,” he joked. “It’s been a while.”

Herman, like her beau, is also in the industry, and has roles on shows like American Crime Story and Fresh Off the Boat. “The day you proposed was one of the best days,” she wrote Wednesday, “but every day with you is my favorite. I love you! Happy Valentine’s Day @therealleech!”
