She said yes! Peter Facinelli is engaged to his girlfriend Jaimie Alexander. The Twilight star popped the question to the Thor actress on Monday, March 16, at the top of the Empire State Building, his rep confirms to Us Weekly.
The couple, who both appeared on Nurse Jackie and worked together on Loosies, went public back in November 2012 — just eight months after Facinelli and his ex-wife Jennie Garth announced they were separating after 11 years of marriage.
“She knew it was coming but was overwhelmed during the proposal,” another source tells Us of the happy bride-to-be.
In January, the couple walked their first red carpet together with Facinelli’s kids at the opening of Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem” in Santa Monica. Prior to their public family outing, the couple celebrated Facinelli’s 40th birthday in Mexico, where they were spotted swimming and engaging in some poolside PDA.
Facinelli and Garth finalized their divorce in June 2013.
