Jennie Garth is engaged.
The 42-year-old actress’ boyfriend made the ”perfect” proposal around her birthday on April 3 and a delighted Jennie had no hesitation in saying ”yes.”
A source said: ”Dave had been working on this for months, and really wanted to plan something special for her around her birthday and make it perfect.”
The couple’s happy news has been confirmed by their representative to PEOPLE. Jennie and Dave have been an item since last autumn and have been virtually inseparable since they got together. The marriage will be Jennie’s second time down the aisle.
She was previously wed to Peter Facinelli – with whom she has three children, Luca, 17, Lola, 12, and Fiona, eight – but they split in March 2012 after 11 years of marriage.
Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Jennie has previously admitted it took her a long time to get over her divorce from the Twilight star. She said: ”I think that for anybody that’s going through bad times in their life, it’s really important to let yourself just fall apart – it’s the putting yourself back together that’s really important. And (not) just being able to put yourself back together, but to pick up each piece of you and look at it and put it back the way you want it – and not just the way it went. You know, kind of re-put yourself back together in a new way – (that’s) a good goal.”
