Just what the doctor ordered: Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander are engaged.

The actor popped the question to his former “‘Nurse Jackie” costar on Monday, and his-and-her confirmations by their reps were made to the Los Angeles Times late Wednesday.

Facinelli, 41, who also played ageless vampire patriarch Carlisle Cullen in the “Twilight Saga” films, proposed to the “Thor” star in a scene straight out of a movie: at the top of New York’s Empire State Building, according to People, which was first to announce the engagement.

“Had fun @empirestatebldg with @JaimieAlexander Top of the world... " Facinelli tweeted on Monday.


And Lady Sif, 31, shared a snapshot kissing her man at the top of the NYC landmark that she captioned: “Top of the world with my love @peterfacinelli @empirestatebldg #Love #ES”

The couple has been romantically linked since November 2012, the mag said.

This is the first marriage for Alexander and the second for Facinelli. The actor was married to “Beverly Hills, 90210" star Jennie Garth for 11 years before they split in 2012. They former couple has three daughters together.
