Dot-Marie Jones is engaged to longtime love Bridgett Casteen, after proposing at Disneyland Oct. 4.

Jones, an actress best known for her portrayal of Coach Shannon Beiste on Glee, and Casteen, who have known each other for three years, were at the Anaheim theme park for Gay Days Anaheim, an annual celebration for LGBT and allies to visit.

Casteen shared the news on Twitter, tweeting a picture of her engagement ring with the caption, “So this happened today.”

Jones addressed the news by posting a photo of the newly engaged couple with the caption “SO HAPPY!!”

Casteen celebrated the news on Twitter again the day after, writing that her fiancé makes her “the happiest woman in the world.”

“It’s the happiest day of my life. I never thought I’d find somebody that loving and kind,” Jones told The Advocate after announcing the news at a Gay Days Q&A event.

This will be Jones’ first marriage, and Casteen’s second – she has three children from a previous relationship.

Jones returns to Glee this week for the Cory Monteith tribute episode, titled “The Quarterback.” The episode airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
