Actually, they've been engaged for a little while now, but the world is just learning of it courtesy a People report. The magazine says that Ford proposed the "Brothers & Sisters" star over Valentine's Day weekend while the two were on vacation with their adopted son, Liam.
The marriage will be the first for Flockhart, 44, and the third for the 66-year-old Ford. He was previously wed to Mary Marquardt and screenwriter Melissa Mathison and has two children from each marriage. He also has three grandkids.
Ford is currently starring in the movie "Crossing Over," which is in limited release. Flockhart is wrapping up the third season of ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," where her character is struggling to adapt to motherhood after adopting a baby.
