Ginnifer Goodwin has got engaged.

The 'He's Just Not That Into You' star - who has been dating actor Joey Kern for almost two years - told friends of plans to wed earlier in the month, and her representative has since confirmed the happy news.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Yup, it's definitely true! Joey emailed all his friends back on the 12th and gave them the good news."

The 32-year-old actress - who previously dated 'American Pie' actor Chris Klein - recently admitted she is at her happiest and most productive in her career when she is in love.

She said: "I'm a better person in a relationship, and I'm a happier person. I need to come home at the end of the day and have it not be about me and my hair and make-up.

"And I think my work is more inspired when home is safe and sound and solid because what I do for a living is so bananas and so insecure."
