THE SOPRANOS star Joseph Gannascoli has announced he's getting married following a whirlwind romance.

The actor, whose character VITO SPATAFORE was outed as a gay mobster in May (04), has proposed to clothing boutique manager DIANA BENINCASA, after just three months of dating.

He coos, "She makes me laugh like no other girl has ever made me laugh.

"I met her three months ago, and I immediately knew that this was the girl."

Gannascoli recently took his fiancee ring shopping, where she picked out a princess-cut, 3-carat diamond.

He adds, "She really liked it. Her face lit up, and I said, 'Okay, that's the diamond. Wrap it up, let's do it!'"

The pair will exchange nuptials in June (05) at OHEKA CASTLE in Cold Spring Hills, New York.
