Former Home and Away actor Jake Ryan and his DJ girlfriend Alice Quiddington are engaged to be married.
The pair made the surprise announcement on Instagram after heading out for dinner at Ode Bar Cucina in Bondi on Thursday.
Jake shared an intimate photo of the pair kissing with Alice showing off the ring.
'GRAPPA ALL ROUND - stick a fork in me,' he wrote, sharing a number of ring emojis.
Meanwhile, Alice shared the same photo on her own social media to let fans know of the happy news.
'Future hubby,' she wrote, sharing a ring emoji.
The couple were immediately congratulated by celebrity friends including Bambi Northwood-Blyth, model Yan Yan Chan and socialite, Nadia Fairfax.
'CONGRATULATIONS,' Bambi wrote.
'Omg. congratulations,' Yan Yan wrote. While socialite Nadia Fairfax offered: 'SO GOOD SQUID! XXX.'
Jake and Alice have been in a relationship for nearly three years. The pair welcomed son Wolf, now one, in October 2019.
Jake only recently spoke of his love of fatherhood while speaking to Daily Mail Australia.
'It's not an easy road; fatherhood or parenthood. But it's the most rewarding and beautiful time. I've loved every second of it,' he said.
'My days are just consumed with him [Wolf], and everything that you sort of do for life is about your child now which is great. It's nice to have that, to have someone else to work towards, apart from yourself.'
The pair's romance was first reported in February 2019 after The Daily Telegraph claimed they had been spending quality time together.
Prior to his loving romance with Alice, Jake told New Idea that he hadn't been on a date in years.
'I haven't been on a date in years – I'd be terrified,' be began.
'That was the last time I was in a relationship – that was about four years ago now,' he added.
'I'm definitely not looking for it [love], but the door isn't closed. It's not on the top of my priority list.'
