“Twilight” Star & “Thor” Actress Get Engaged

It’s a match made in movie franchise heaven.

Twilight” alum Peter Facinelli is officially engaged to Jaimie Alexander, a rising star best known for her role as Sif in Marvel’s “Thor” films.

PEOPLE reports that Facinelli proposed to Alexander at the top of the Empire State Building, after more than two years of dating.

They “bonded” filming “Loosies” in late 2012, after which Alexander nabbed a recurring role on “Nurse Jackie,” on which Facinelli was a series regular for five seasons.

“It’s very new to me and it’s scary,” Alexander told PEOPLE in November 2012. “But it’s also something we don’t want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart… It makes me feel really good. He’s a good guy with a great family and I couldn’t be any luckier.”

He was previously married to “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Jennie Garth, with whom he has two daughters. Their divorce was made final in 2013.
