Christina Ricci and comedian Owen Benjamin are engaged.
The 29-year-old actress and the 'House Bunny' star met on the set of their film 'All's Faire in Love' last year and threw a party to celebrate at the Palihouse Hotel in West Hollywood at the weekend.
A source said: "Christina is absolutely thrilled. She and Owen are getting on great and the party was a real celebration of their love for one another."
The pair - who make a striking partnership as Christina is just 5ft 1in, while Owen is 6ft 6in - went public with their relationship last November and have been spotted canoodling in dozens of Los Angeles hotspots, including Nobu Los Angeles in West Hollywood.
Christina has previously admitted she is ready to tie the knot.
She said: "I just want to be married, or just engaged. Basically, I just want a ring. And the tax break!"
