Ed Westwick has popped the question to Amy Jackson.
The Gossip Girl star, 36, got down on one knee in G’staad, Switzerland as he asked the Bollywood actress, 31, to be his wife in front of a crowd of onlookers.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, the pair shared a slew of sweet snaps together, captioning the images: ‘Hell Yes [ring emoji].’
Ed starred as anti-hero and playboy Chuck Bass in hit U.S. drama Gossip Girl and fans were quick to joke that Chuck was finally settling down.
The university lecturer’s son, who was raised in Stevenage, Herts, met Amy, 31, a Bollywood star with a four-year-old son by an ex-boyfriend, at Silverstone racetrack in 2021.

A source told The Sun on Sunday at the time: ‘Ed and Amy are a really good match. They hit it off straight away.
‘Both like to have fun and are career-driven. They’re enjoying getting to know each other for now.’
The couple went Instagram official just before Valentine’s Day in 2022, with Amy penning a sweet note on her social media just in time for the occasion.
She wrote: ‘Happy Valentine’s Baby – forever grateful for the endless belly laughs and ultimate love!’
Last year the couple moved into a new home and have been kept busy with the renovations.
‘We got a new place in the countryside just outside of London,’ he told the Daily Mail of his move from the capital.
‘I’m decorating the house right now — I’m a bit of an interior designer.’
Speaking about Amy, he added: ‘Things are wonderful — she’s my best mate.
‘She’s a great mother, all those things you want that I saw with my mum and dad. I hope I can have my version.’
Their proposal attracted quite the crowd of onlookers who gathered on the bridge

Ed was quick to joke that Chuck was finally settling down
Last year, when asked about the prospect of marriage and children in an interview with Hello! magazine, Ed said: ‘Yes! One hundred per cent. I grew up in a wonderful household where my mum and dad were married.
‘My parents loved each other fiercely right up to the end. I idolised them and their relationship. Just that kind of support!’
The actor went on to explain that his father died 10 years ago and his mother passed away in September 2022.
Ed’s mother died from Mesothelioma – a type of cancer caused by asbestos.
The star said while he cannot talk to his parent, he knows she is still there with them.
‘I remember her hands or her shoulders, which I’d touch. I have her voice notes and clips of videos of her’, he added.
‘I miss her enormously, but I try to think about the future to stay positive, like marriage and kids and all of that.’
Amy was previously in a relationship with hotelier George Panayiotou, with the pair getting engaged in January 2019 and welcoming a son that September.
They broke things off in 2021, before her relationship with Ed began later that year. The model and the hotelier’s son, named Andreas, is now four.
Ed was previously dating South African model and influencer Tamara Francesconi for two years, before the couple parted ways in 2021.
Amy has starred in a string of Indian films, predominantly in Tamil, Hindi, and Telugu languages – after auditioning for one in London in a twist of fate.#

After the show ended in 2012 it was rebooted with a fresh cast, and Ed confessed he’d be more than happy to reprise his role if they’d have him.
Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after two seasons.
The original show followed the lives of privileged teenagers attending an exclusive private school in Manhattan and the mysterious blogger that anonymously dished out their scandalous secrets.
‘It blows my mind and it feels crazy to have been a part of something so big,’ Ed confessed. ‘It was a big part of my life back then and it still is, and now with the reboot a whole generation get to enjoy it.’
