So long, Samantha? Sex and the City actor Jason Lewis, who played Samantha Jones’s love interest Smith Jerrod on the beloved HBO series, is engaged to producer Liz Godwin, the couple announced to People on Valentine’s Day.

“She loves me when I am amazing, and when I am not,” Lewis, 48, told the mag. “She is always on my side and ever my support. She creates space for me in which I grow and I am a better man for knowing her, so the humble ask to take her as my wife, and of course her ‘yes,’ are absolute blessings to my life.”

Lewis popped the question on the coast of Cali at sunset. “To keep Liz from suspecting anything, I organized a climbing [and] beach day out at Point Dume, Malibu, with friends and family gathered for the holidays,” he told People. “We set Liz up to climb a cliff right over the water, just before sunset… My buddies and I then sprinted up a back trail to the climb so I could be waiting for her at the top. I anchored myself to the rock—clipped her to me, just in case—then got on one knee and did ‘the thing.’”
