Wedding bell will soon ring for Maria Bello and her boyfriend Bryn Mooser now that the couple have engaged. Her representative confirmed the engagement, saying that the actress is "very happy."
Bello, 41, is the latest Hollywood actress to settle down with a much younger man. Mooser, a writer, is just 28. The pair announced their engagement to Bello's hometown newspaper, The Norristown Times Herald, in Norristown, Penn. which claimed that both Bello and Bryn "fell in love over a sheer passion of politics, Africa and cryptozoology."
Bello gave birth to son Jackson Blue McDermott, her son with then boyfriend Dan McDermott, in March 2001. The New York Post's Page Six recently quoted her as saying, she "was always anti-marriage. I didn't understand monogamy. I couldn't figure out how that could last. And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone - of having a partner in life."
No wedding date has been set as of press time.
