Home and Away's James Stewart and Sarah Roberts, who have been getting hot and heavy on the Aussie soap, have just announced they're engaged in real life!
The loved-up pair, who play fan favourites Justin and Willow, took to social media to share the happy news.
Speaking to New Idea magazine, Sarah revealed that James proposed at their favourite restaurant - and the same place where they had their first date - on November 30.
"Sarah's birthday is December 4, but I wanted to make it a surprise," James said.
"Some good friends said, 'Keep it simple'. So, I was sitting in this Italian restaurant and I was sweating, but I kept it simple – which made it more real."
"You tricked me," Sarah added. "I didn’t see it coming this soon. When the box came out I thought, 'Maybe it’s a birthday bracelet', but Jimmy was nervous, a bit sweaty, and his eyes were watery. I knew something was up."
The couple plan to tie the knot in spring next year.
"Jimmy’s family is from the Gold Coast and my family is from Melbourne, so it’ll be somewhere along the East Coast. I’ve asked my brother to walk me down the aisle," Sarah revealed.
The 43-year-old previously dated his other on-screen love interest, Isabella Giovinazzo, who played aspiring singer Phoebe Nicholson.
Stewart also has a six-year-old daughter, Scout, with his former 'Packed To The Rafters' co-star Jessica Marais.
