Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander are engaged!

The 41-year-old Twilight actor popped the question to Alexander, 31, on Monday, March 16, atop the Empire State Building, joining the legions of other couples who’ve celebrated their love with a proposal atop the iconic 102-story Manhattan skyscraper – stylishly, nonetheless.

The Thor actress posted this sweet pic of her and her hubby to be (both wearing leather jackets and gray jeans – nothing says love like matching your partner’s outfit) kissing with the beautiful NYC view as backdrop.

Facinelli and his new fiancée are currently both in New York: he is promoting his new NBC series American Odyssey, while Alexander is filming the pilot for NBC’s Blindspot.

The couple worked together on Loosies (in 2011) and then on Nurse Jackie. They went public with their relationship in 2012, 8 month after Facinelli and Jennie Garth announced they were separating after 11 years of marriage.

Alexander had told People back in November 2012, “I know how [the relationship] makes me feel in my heart … it makes me feel really good. He’s a good guy with a great family and I couldn’t be any luckier.”

Facinelli and Garth officially divorced in 2013. He has three children with his ex-wife, Luca, 17, Lola Ray, 12 and Fiona, 8.
