Christina Ricci and her boyfriend James Heerdegen are engaged!

The “Pan Am” actress and the dolly grip met on the set of that canceled ABC period drama, and apparently their engagement is almost old news. The actress had been sporting what looked liked an engagement ring since October, Us Weekly first reported, but only confirmed the news Friday.

“Yeah,” she told the mag at a makeup event in Los Angeles. “[We got engaged] a couple months back.”

The 32-year-old has been affianced before, to “Sullivan & Son” actor Owen Benjamin, but they broke up in June 2009.


Ricci is set to appear in the “Smurfs” sequel next summer and the film “Mother’s Day” with Sharon Stone, Susan Sarandon, Laura Dern and Andie MacDowell this year.

“I worked so much last year that I just really wanted to have some time off to just kind of live,” the “Addams Family” alum said. “You kind of need to take time to be a real person.”
