Malin Akerman and Jack Donnelly are taking their relationship to the next level, as they formally announced their engagement on Friday. The couple made their engagement official when Akerman shared a sweet photo of them together on the social media. On the caption, the actress wrote, "This sweet and loving man has stepped into our lives and stole both our hearts! I think we’re gonna keep him around for a while."

In a report from Entertainment Tonight, Akerman and her British boyfriend made their red carpet debut as a couple on the 57th Monte Carlo TV Festival back in June.

Both were also reportedly spotted kissing each other in March, which confirmed the speculations about their relationship.

The man who stole her heart

Prior to her recent engagement to Donnelly, Akerman was previously married to her former partner, Roberto Zincone, whom she shared their 4-year old son, Sebastian. Following their six years of marriage, the former couple decided to call it quits.

Meanwhile, the former "Billions" actress was lucky to find love with her British boyfriend. She added in one of her posts that Donnelly has stolen her heart. When her boyfriend entered their lives, he already became a significant part of their family, as well as with her son, Sebastian. While the actress happily shared the news with her social media followers, she also revealed that she's going to keep her man for a long while.

Best wishes

In a report obtained by People, well wishes and congratulations immediately poured out from Akerman's Instagram followers. Some of her friends have also left sweet messages to the newly-engaged couple. A source also told People that Akerman and Donnelly are happy together and both are enjoying each other's company.

Following her split with former partner in 2016, the actress added that she was not actively seeking for a new partner. However, fate must have been the reason for the couple to cross their ways finally.

In one of her interviews with People, the actress added that for quite a long time, she has been focusing her energy on both her work and her son.

She never really intended to find someone whom she can date with. However, Akerman previously added that if someone comes along to date her, then definitely, it would be a fantastic chance for her.

As of this time, the couple hasn't given further details of their wedding yet. While it is still unseen on what year they're gonna tie the knot, their families and friends are happy after learning about their engagement.
