Acting couple announce their engagement!

There is some lovely and happy news today for Rupert Friend and Aimee Mullins, who have announced their engagement!

Aimee, who is first generation Irish-American and actually holds an Irish passport, competed in the 1996 Paralympics before moving on to inspirational speaking and acting. She has been dating Homeland actor Rupert since 2013.

The news broke at the L'Oréal Paris’ Women of Worth awards on Tuesday, at which Aimee had been quiet about the exciting news: “It was really sweet because Aimee was tight-lipped about it earlier in the night, not wanting to take attention from the honourees.”

Congratulations to the couple on their exciting news!
