The actress didn’t share further details, such as who she was engaged to, until a day later when she shared a selfie of herself and Michael on Instagram.

“Lover,” she wrote in the caption.

A source confirmed to PEOPLE earlier this month that the two met at the end of 2019.

“She seems happy,” the source said.

Her latest social media activity is a rare occasion as the actress has kept a relatively low profile over the past few years.

She took a moment to “check-in” with her fans on Instagram Story last week, taking the time to thank those of supported her and expressing her intention to design a fashion collection of her own.

“‘Sup, Instagram. Just wanted to say hi to all of my followers. I really wanted to say I appreciate you so much for supporting me,” she said in the clip. “I’m really looking forward to starting my clothing line, and I’m hoping that in the near future it will be out online.”

Bynes is currently staying in a sober living house, nearly seven months after she graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in June 2019.

Bynes had tweeted about her graduation from the Los Angeles school, sharing a photo of herself in her graduation cap and gown as she posed with a friend, tweeting, “FIDM graduate 2019 #fidmgraduation.”
