A fairy tale come true! Emilie de Ravin announced that she’s engaged to her longtime love, writer and director Eric Bilitch.
The Once Upon a Time actress, 34, shared the happy news via Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday, July 6. “So excited!!!” she wrote. “I love you @ericbilitch 💍” Bilitch retweeted her post and added a series of heart-eyed emojis.
De Ravin also shared a close-up snap of her engagement ring (with her smiling face just behind her upheld hand). The diamond sparkler features a sizable center stone set in a thin pavé-studded band.
“Emilie’s ring has a cushion-cut stone, which is actually one of the oldest styles of cuts. And it’s one of the most popular cuts today, according to research,” jewelry expert Michael O’Connor tells Us Weekly. “I would say the main diamond is approximately two-and-a-half carats, for a total approximate weight of three-and-a-quarter carats.”
He added, “The pavé band of diamonds is most likely set into platinum — also one of the most popular styles for women today.”

The Australian actress, who plays Belle on the ABC drama, and her fiancé welcomed their first child, Vera, this past March. At the time, she tweeted, “Welcome to the big wide world! Vera Audrey de Ravin-Bilitch born March 12th 2016. Couldn’t be happier! So in love with our little girl!” Bilitch replied with his own excitement: “Madly in love with our gorgeous girl. And her momma is the most wonderful woman on earth! Could not be happier!”
One month later, the Lost alumna shared the first photo of their infant daughter’s face. “Hello world!” de Ravin captioned. “Thank you for a wonderful first month. Everything is amazing here! Love, Vera.”
