When you know, you know!

Claire Holt is ending the year on a high — she just got engaged! The Aussie actress from The Originals shared the happy news that she’s engaged to Andrew Joblon on Instagram, where she posted a photo of them kissing, with the brand-new sparkler on her ring finger front and centre.

“My heart is so full,” she wrote.

This is such an exciting thing for Claire, since earlier this year, her first husband, Matthew Kaplan, filed for divorce in April — just a day before their one-year wedding anniversary. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason.

Claire, who’s best known for her role as Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (though she’ll always be Emma Gilbert from H2O: Just Add Water to us), seems to be keeping this relationship a little more under wraps than her previous one. Andrew, a real estate agent who has been linked to Amanda Seyfried, appears in some of her Instagram pictures, but she doesn’t even tag him. (His account is private, anyway.)

She has even shown Andrew around Australia — or around Sydney, at least.

It was during a getaway to Italy in July that Claire first went public about Andrew on her 'gram, as proven by these loved-up photos:

Congrats to Claire and Andrew!
