Julie Benz is off the market! 

The former Dexter star is engaged to her boyfriend Rich Orosco, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Benz, 39, and Orosco, a marketing executive, dated four years before he proposed on Sunday. Shortly after popping the question, Orosco had another surprise in store for Benz: he had arranged for nearly 60 of their closest friends and family to meet at the home, along with a Mariachi band for a "pop-up Mexican fiesta" to celebrate their engagement. 

"I can't believe that none of my friends leaked the surprise," Benz tells Us. "It was like a Navy Seal operation."

Benz was married to actor John Kassir from 1998 to 2007.
