Though Allison Williams's TV character is rather unlucky in love, the actress is ready to take the plunge in real life.

The "Girls" star, 25, is engaged to her boyfriend of three years, Ricky Van Veen, her rep confirms to Yahoo.

According to the New York Post, the couple met through mutual friends while Allison -- a 2010 Yale grad -- was filming the pilot for her hit HBO show.

While we imagine it would be a little intimidating to date the daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams, Van Veen, who is the co-founder of CollegeHumor, managed to get his seal of approval. During an interview with Larry King in January, the starlet smiled when asked what the newsman thought of her beau: "He likes him a lot."

And, clearly, so does Allison, who definitely wants to have a family someday.

"My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom," she recently told Glamour. "I'd love to be a mom -- and not have to bring my kids into my trailer ... Or a balance [of both]. But you've [got to] call it on the fly to a certain extent."
