All-grown-up Jonathan Bower is ready to walk down the aisle! Former Who’s the Boss child star Danny Pintauro is engaged to boyfriend Wil Tabares, he tells Us Weekly exclusively. The happy couple, who live and work in Las Vegas, headed to Palm Springs, Calif. earlier this week to celebrate their one-year anniversary together. Over a romantic dinner on Wednesday April 3, Tabares popped the question by playing a homemade video — featuring a ring!

“He made a video, and in the video held up the box [with the ring],” Pintauro, now a Vegas restaurant manager, tells Us. “I looked up and he had it in his hand!” Entertainer and Cosmopolitan casino employee Tabares quickly shared the happy news — and a pic of the ring — with his Facebook friends. “He said yes!” read the caption.

Their wedding plans are slightly complicated, legally speaking. “We live in a state, Nevada, that does not yet allow same-sex marriage,” explains the Stanford University grad, who came out as gay in 1997, and whose most recent acting credit was a 2010 episode of the Secret Life of the American Teenager. “Our plan is to move to California once Prop 8 is overturned.”

Pintauro starred as Jonathan Bower alongside TV mom Judith Light, Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano in ABC sitcom Who’s the Boss from 1984 to 1992. He adds of his husband-to-be: “Wil is the best, and I couldn’t be happier to spend the rest of our lives together!”
