Dennis Quaid is officially engaged.
“I had the ring in my pocket,” gushed Quaid to the outlet. “It has been kind of a month-and-a-half plan — I wanted it to be private.”
The “Parent Trap” actor revealed he waited for the perfect sunset to pop the question.
“She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, ‘Will you marry me?’ And then she fell down,” said Quaid.

“It happened on the very northernmost point of Oahu, at Turtle Bay,” he continued. “It was kind of spontaneous. It was very much a surprise.”
The couple was first spotted together in May of this year after having dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood. A rep for Quaid did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment at the time.
Previously, Quaid was linked to Santa Auzina, 32. It is believed the pair were last photographed together in December.
Us Weekly reported Savoie’s private Instagram account features several pictures of the student with Quaid. The outlet reports that Savoie shared a photo of herself and Quaid kissing and captioned a snap of the duo embracing: “Never been happier.”
