Lord have mercy! John Stamos is engaged to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh.

The Full House actor, 54, announced the news via Instagram late Sunday, October 22, by posting a cartoon of himself standing with McHugh in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.

“I asked … she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after,” he wrote.

I asked…she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after💍

In a statement to People, the actor’s rep revealed that Stamos proposed within the theme park. He devised a romantic plan before popping the question, by creating a short film that was designed by Pixar and Disney films. The final moments of the personalized reel included a scene from The Little Mermaid, in which Stamos was challenged to “just ask the girl.”

Following the proposal, the couple celebrated with their families at 21 Royal. The couple have been together for two years.

McHugh, 31, is an actress who’s starred in movies like Alleged and 48 Hours to Live.
