"Aaron surprised Perrey with a room filled with roses and candles in a suite at New York City's Ace Hotel," a source tells Us exclusively, adding that the room holds sentimental value for the couple.
The romance didn't stop there, however, as the insider adds, "He took her to ABC Kitchen, her favorite restaurant in NYC and asked her to marry him in front of his mom and family."
Reeves' mother was also a part of the family affair. "He had asked my mom in advance for her blessing," Reeves tells Us Weekly. "Aaron is so sweet and romantic." Reeves sported her gorgeous engagement ring when she attended HBO's Boardwalk Empire season 5 NYC premiere with her hubby-to-be in September.
The actress, 43, has been dating her athletic beau for about a year and a half, sources tell Us. Fox has been a fixture by her side in recent months, walking red carpets with her at movie premieres and happily posing for pictures with Reeves at swanky parties.
The couple loves dancing and going to concerts together, they told Us at an event last month. They also recently took a vacation together to Mexico, spending three days pampering themselves with spa services.
The Covert Affairs star previously dated David Duchovny in the mid-1990s, and was reportedly in a relationship with actor Nathan Fillion in the late 2000s.
