Wedding bells are in the future for actor Ryan Phillippe and his longtime girlfriend, Paulina Slagter! After more than four years of dating, the pair became engaged over the holidays, People reports. Slagter, 24, a law student at Stanford University, was reportedly seen showing off her new bling in Miami over the weekend, where the couple is vacationing.

Phillippe, 41, described Slagter on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show in April: "She's awesome. ... When people see her they have these judgments because she could be a model but she's about to graduate Stanford Law," he said. "What's also great about it—as you get older certain issues become more important to you. I'm very involved in civil rights issues, and so to be with a woman who could actually make an impact in the legal realm—that's a beautiful thing."

The actor also said at the time he was "not opposed" to getting married again.

Congratulations to the couple!
