Allison Williams has got engaged to Ricky Van Veen.
The 'Girls' star, who plays uptight aspiring singer Marnie Michaels on the HBO series, is set to marry her boyfriend of three years after he popped the question recently.
A spokesperson for the 25-year-old actress confirmed the news to PEOPLE.com.
The brunette beauty, whose father is NBC news anchor Brian Williams, met Ricky, the co-founder of College Humor, a popular comedy brand and website, through mutual friends.
Allison recently admitted she ''would walk away'' from her acting career in favour of starting a family.
She said: ''My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom. I'd love to be a mom -- and not have to bring my kids into my trailer . . . Or a balance [of both]. But you gotta call it on the fly to a certain extent.''
But she insisted she wasn't ready to throw her acting career away for something more family-friendly in the near future.
She said: ''I want to play a villain. I want to play a romantic heroine. I want to play someone who's on heroin. There's nothing I don't want to do. I want to play a guy at some point. I'll gain 100lbs, I'll cut my hair off, I'll do whatever. I'm not precious about any of it.''
His new album Underneath It All is out now.
