Ashley Tisdale is now wearing a ring on a very important finger! After the actress got engaged to boyfriend Christopher French on Thursday, Aug. 8, she stepped out with her fiance sporting a shiny new accessory.

As Tisdale's rep confirmed to Us Weekly, musician French proposed to the High School Musical star on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building in New York City. "He had been planning on it for awhile. I think she knew it was coming but she is so happy," a source told Us of the engagement. That night, Tisdale tweeted, "Best night of my life. We're on top of the world."

The newly engaged couple went for a stroll together in NYC's Soho neighborhood the next day. Tisdale, wearing a blank tank top and jeans, held onto her fiance's arm and flashed two platinum bands on her ring finger. "Excited to run around and have a shopping day in NYC!!" she tweeted. "Woo hoo."

The actress first when public with her relationship with French in December 2012. "She likes those rocker types," a source told Us at the time. "They have mutual friends and just met through hanging out."
