Congratulations are in order for Joel Kinnaman!

The Suicide Squad star, 41, announced his engagement to model Kelly Gale in an Instagram post on Monday, sharing a photo from the romantic proposal.

"She said no. Jus kiddin..." he jokingly captioned a picture of himself down on one knee.

Gale, 25, also confirmed the happy news on her Instagram account, posting a shot of the couple sharing a kiss atop of a cliff overlooking the coast.

In the picture, the Victoria's Secret model can be seeing wearing a diamond sparkler on her wedding ring finger.

"Yours forever❤️," she wrote in the caption.

Meanwhile, model Sara Sampaio commented under Gale's post, "Awwwww 😍😍 congratulations 😘😘😘."

Kinnaman and Wattenstrom split in late 2018 after two years of marriage, according to Us Weekly.

Kinnaman went public with his relationship with Gale in 2019. That October, the two made their red carpet debut at the premiere of For All Mankind.

Last year, Gale revealed that they had adopted a dog together amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Guess who just became puppy parents? We rescued this little cutie yesterday😍🐶 ," Gale wrote in a March 22 post. "In the wake of this pandemic a lot of dog shelters are closing and dogs are being killed. Many dogs are in need for temporary or permanent homes. If you are thinking of getting a dog please consider rescuing a doggy in need of a home instead of going to a breeder."

"Thank you @awishforanimalsorg for helping us find Zoe," she added at the time. "We love her already❤️🐶."
