The stars surprised fans by confirming their engagement on Sunday via Instagram, with Melissa sharing an adorable photo of herself and her husband-to-be. Chris was seen planting a kiss on his fiancee, while Melissa, of course, was seen showing off her huge engagement ring. The size of that rock! No wonder she’s grinning from ear to ear.

The actress, 30, chose to keep things short but sweet in her caption and simply said: ‘Yes yes yes, it will always be yes.’ Her future groom, meanwhile, proved the feeling was mutual as he told his 2.4millions, Melissa accepting his proposal had made him ‘the happiest’.
Melissa and Chris star alongside each other on CW series Supergirl where she plays the show’s leading lady Kara Zor‑El, Bizarro. Supergirl debuted on the CBS network, but moved to the CW for season two. Chris graced our screens as her love interest Mon-El in 2016 and it seems romance blossomed in reality for the co-stars some time a year later.
It will be second time down the aisle for Melissa – she was previously married to Glee star Blake Jenner. Blake played Ryder Lynn on the series and had met Melissa on set. She appeared as Marley Rose for 42 episodes. They had married in 2015, but their union was brief and Melissa filed for divorce in December 2016. Their divorce was finalised in 2017, with the exes reportedly coming to an agreement privately and amicably.
