Eva Longoria has made a big announcement — she is engaged!

In a Twitter post, the 40-year-old Telenovela actress announced Sunday that she is now engaged to businessman Jose Antonio Baston.

"Ummmm so this happened....#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness," she wrote next to a picture that focused on a gorgeous, pink-toned engagement ring.

According to ABC News, Baston, 47, asked Longoria to be his wife during a vacation in Dubai.

Hollywood Life notes that the couple's trip to Dubai was not just a vacation. Jose, who goes by the nickname "Pepe," was traveling in the country with Eva to help with Global Gift Foundation, a non-profit that helps create better lives for women, children, and families in need.

Dating since 2013, Longoria revealed last year what attracted her to Baston, who is the president of Latin America's Televisa media company.

"I'm attracted to humor and intellect in a man. Let me tell you, I'm very lucky in my life," she told People magazine.

This will be Longoria's third marriage.
