After dating for 10 years, Jesse Metcalfe and longtime girlfriend, Cara Santana are finally engaged!
The "Dallas" star popped the question to his stunning fashion blogger love with a stunning 5.5-carat emerald shaped diamond ring that he designed while aboard a 50-foot sailboat in the middle of the Hudson River in New York City on Aug. 13.
"She loves her ring and is thrilled to be engaged to the love of her life," a source told E! News.
The 37-year-old actor told Us Weekly the he had every detail planned for the surprise proposal, including having their song, Eric Clapton's "Pretty Girl," play in the background as they watched the sunset.
"It's been a long time coming, but we couldn't be happier," Jesse told the magazine.
The couple has been dodging engagement rumors for years, but sounds like this long courtship was their plan all long.
"I wouldn't say it was love at first sight. It was more of a slow burn, which I think is a better start for a relationship" he told YourTango.com back in 2013. "I think if it comes on fast and furious, it generally fizzles out just as fast. We were slow and steady."
The sentimental proposal was just ahead of Cara's 33rd birthday on Aug. 15. The twosome most recently walked the red carpet together at the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Summer 2016 TCA press tour event in Beverly Hills.
In the past, Jesse dated British singer Nadine Coyle of the band Girls Aloud and has hooked up with "The Bachelor" winner Courtney Robertson.
