Model Petra Nemcova has found love again: She’s engaged to British actor Jamie Belman, PEOPLE confirms.

“Petra and Jamie are delighted to announce their engagement after a whirlwind 8 month romance,” the rep said in a statement.

The couple, who were introduced by mutual friends, spent Christmas together celebrating with their families and have not yet set a date or location for the wedding.

Nemcova, 31, had been linked in the past to James Blunt and Sean Penn. She was engaged previously to Simon Atlee, who died in the devastating tsunami that struck Asia in December 2004.
