It was a night to remember for the former soap sweetheart.

Join us as we send General Hospital and Another World alum Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney; Alli) congratulations on her recent engagement to professional race/stunt driver, television host and X Games medalist Tanner Foust. The former ABC soap sweetheart announced the big news from Paris, France.

On Sunday, August 7, with the Eiffel Tower lighting up the night in the background, and a bottle of champagne set off to the side, Foust, with a ring box in hand, got down on one knee and proposed to his love. In the breathtaking photo, Willis was happily in shock and announced the following day, “So about last night… How in the world did I get so lucky to spend my life with this incredible man?”

She went on to say that this was the happiest night of her life and expressed to her fiancé, “You and both of our girls mean everything to me.”

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Ashley Jones (Bridget) simply commented, “Wow,” as fellow automobile enthusiast Ant Anstead echoed Jones’ “wow” and shared, “Huge congratulations, you guys! Amazing!”

Last June, the couple celebrated Foust’s birthday in what looks to be a small plane.

Before that, they took some time out on the water in Newport Beach.

And for Willis’ birthday, they enjoyed an “amazing dinner,” as the actress explained that she “came straight from work and forgot to take off [her] character’s wedding ring.”

We wish the couple a lifetime of happiness!
