Glee star Lauren Potter just got engaged

Good news Gleeks! 

Remember Becky the cheerleader from the popular show?

Her sense of humour, witty lines and ability to deal with important issues on the show quickly made her a fan favourite.

Last weekend Lauren's long-time boyfriend Timothy Spear proposed to her with a promise ring in a very sweet way.

Robin Sinkhorn, Lauren's mother, told People Magazine that Timothy proposed to her last weekend at a picnic.

The two were sharing a romantic day in the park in Laguna overlooking the ocean when Timothy popped the question.

"He picked out the ring, made payments on it, and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready," Sinkhorn said.

"Then they watched the sunset together."

The couple have known each other since they were kids and were friends for years before they began dating.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

In addition to her work in Glee, the 26-year-old has also starred in Guest Room, a short film in which she plays a young woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

Lauren is also an advocate for people with special needs working with organisations like AbilityPath, Best Buddies International and Special Olympic.

In 2011, Barack Obama appointed her to the President's Committee for people with Intellectual Disabilities, to advise the White House on related issues.
