Kristen Bell knows a little something about how romantic Italy can be.

The “When in Rome” star got engaged over the holidays to her co-star, Dax Shepard, her rep confirmed to CNN.

Bell, who found fame as the title character in the television series “Veronica Mars,” plays Beth, a young woman unlucky in relationships who steals some coins from a fountain of love and finds herself the object of several men’s affections. Shepard plays Gale, one of Beth's suitors  in the romantic comedy.

Bell didn’t have to resort to any magic to snag Shepard, best known for his comedic roles. The pair have reportedly been an item for two years and live together.

    That guy is flat out ugly.

    She could do much better, but I heard she's kind of a 8itch in real life, so maybe not.

    Yay to a Hollywood couple who are both from Michigan (they both grew up within an hours' drive of each other)! Good 'ol Midwest Michigan roots-I'm sure they have a lot in common and both seem down-to-earth..congrats to them and for representing the mitten state!

    Peter – not true, there's lots more. Although I am a little surprised, 9's don't usually marry 5's

    Maybe they just *get* each other. Looks don't last for long. There has to be more than that! Maybe he's the most amazing person she's ever met, and maybe she's the same for him.

    Ha! SHE snagged HIM? From what I know of her and what I know of him, it's the other way around, and I can't come up with a reason, other than a teeny bit of sexism, that he'd be framed as the catch.

    interesting how big events such as these (engagements, divorces, personal battles/triumphs) always seem to happen when said celebrity is promoting a movie...

    they are a cute couple though, it is just a funny pattern!
