Matthew Morrison better put on his dancing shoes! The Glee star officially popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, model Renee Puente, on Thursday, June 27, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

Morrison's friends Elton John and David Furnish announced the couple's happy engagement news during John's White Tie and Tiara Ball to benefit his AIDS Foundation in London later in the evening, an onlooker tells Us.

"Matt's friends absolutely adore Renee!" another source previously told Us. "They have never seen Matt happier than when he is with her. She is super supportive of his career and also works hard on her own. She is such a great girl and they are awesome together."

Morrison, 34, has been dating 26-year-old Puente since late 2011, and the couple is often spotted out and about in Los Angeles.

"I'm very happy. Renee's not in the industry -- I need that normality," the actor previously told Closer magazine of their relationship. "We like to stay home and cook, we're not that Hollywood."

The pair have no problems being silly and poking fun at fame, however. In October 2012, the couple stepped out for Halloween dressed as vintage Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, paying tribute to the pop stars' very public romance.
