Soap opera alum is off the market and proposes with gorgeous diamond.

Singer, songwriter and former All My Children actor Jesse McCartney (Adam ‘J.R.’ Chandler, Jr.) has a lot to celebrate these days. Soaps.com spotted two special photos McCartney posted on his official Instagram account on Sunday September 15. The first kissing his girlfriend Katie Peterson with the photo captioned, “Locked it up,” and the second of Katie with her left hand over her mouth showing off her gorgeous engagement ring captioned, “Katie McCartney has a nice 💍 to it.” People is reporting that he proposed on Friday September 20 at CUT by Wolfgang Puck at 9500 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California while having dinner with friends.

People’s source confirmed to the magazine, “The couple was with a group of friends as McCartney got down on one knee. The whole restaurant fell silent as he asked her to marry him and went into a loud applause and cheered when she said yes!” The couple began dating in 2012. Peterson went on to share a photo on Instagram with her arms around her fiancé, and her ring in full sight, with a note simply stating, “SE🖤EN YEARS.. and also forever.”
