The former Smallville actor, 39, began dating the U.S. soap star in 2014 and Chrishell revealed they were taking their relationship to the next level when she shared a picture on Instagram of a sparkler on her ring finger on Sunday (31Jul16).

The photo, taken by Chrishell of her lower half, shows her left hand placed on top of her legs, as she reclines on a sun lounger. In the caption, she wrote, "You guys think I need sunscreen..?... @justinhartley" followed by emojis of a ring and a face with heart eyes.

The former All My Children actress wrote on Twitter, “Such a happy time. Thanks for all the well wishes guys! So sweet."

The 35-year-old was previously engaged to Glee star Matthew Morrison from 2006 to 2007. He revealed to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine they called off their engagement because he knew immediately afterwards it was the wrong decision.

"I didn't do it for the right reasons," he said. "We'd been going out for a year or so and I felt under pressure from society. I was thinking, 'This is the age when I should probably start having kids so this is what I should do...' But after I did it (proposed), I immediately felt in my heart it wasn't right. My instant thought was 'What did you just do?'"

Justin, who has also starred in Revenge and The Young and the Restless, was previously married his Passions co-star Lindsay Korman between 2004 and 2012. They have a 12-year-old daughter named Isabella.
