Right in the midst of proposal season! Outlander actress Caitriona Balfe is engaged to Tony McGill, she revealed Sunday, January 7, on the Golden Globes 2018 red carpet.

The actress, who portrayed the titular character of Claire Fraser on the beloved Starz drama, proudly sported her engagement ring as she touched on his proposal. “It happened over the break; I’m very happy,” she told People.

Balfe’s ring is an unusual-but-brilliant, three-stone piece similar to Meghan Markle’s diamond from Prince Harry. The Golden Globe nominee’s engagement ring, however, features one large round diamond as the center stone, which is flanked by two smaller sapphires. The jewels are set on a dainty gold band.

The two have been together for two years, but they remain relatively private. Their last public appearance together was in February 2017 at the Oscar Wilde Awards.
