Congratulations are in order for actress Heather Matarazzo! The Princess Diaries star proposed to comedian Heather Turman (yes, they share the same name!) on January 11, and has been in a state of bliss ever since. "We kept it to ourselves for a few days, but it's official! I'm engaged to the absolute, unequivocal love of my life," Turman wrote on Instagram, where she shared photos of the romantic proposal. "I never knew I could find someone that matches me the way she does, in all ways... always. If Hollywood is my pyramids, then she is my Fatima. This is it. #whenyouknowyouknow."

 

Matarazzo caption her own Instagram post with a quote from Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist—Turman's references to "Fatima" and the "pyramids" are from the very same book. "'There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only,'" she wrote. "'It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.'"

"We kept this to ourselves for a few days, but on 1-11, I asked.....and she said yes. To death and back, I love you, Turman. #twinflame #engaged," Matarazzo continued. She also posted the news to Twitter, with a different quote: "When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

 

The happy couple's relationship blossomed out of their joint work on the 2016 comedy Stuck—Matarazzo starred in the film while Turman was a writer and producer. After their friendship took a romantic turn, Matarazzo announced their relationship on Instagram in June of 2017. "This is the [heart] of my life #happypride," she wrote, alongside a photo of the duo.
