Abbie Cornish is getting married. The Jack Ryan actress, also known for her role in Limitless and Sucker Punch, took to Instagram late Thursday, February 14, to announce her engagement to MMA fighter Adel Altamimi.

Cornish started with a photo of Altamimi, a 30-year-old American athlete, competing as an MMA fighter.

“There is so much more here in this pic,” Cornish expressed. “I see a man that has evolved through this life in a way nobody I‘ve ever met has. A warrior. A champion. A believer. A lover. I respect you so much. The light you see is the light you give. Your mindset and patient heroism in this life is beyond… Even though you are running a super charged turbo jet engine on rocket fuel in there! Haha. There are so many lessons that you could teach the world right now, at only 30 years of age, and there is so much more to come. If 80% of the world was like you baby, the world would be good ; ) I love you. Happy Valentines Day.”

Rounding out her romantic posts was a selfie of Cornish cuddling up beside her future husband inside a restaurant.
