Looks like Anna Faris is engaged and ready to be married! 

Faris' 'Mom' costar Allison Janney spoke to US magazine and revealed that 43-year-old Faris and 49-year-old Michael Barrett, have "been engaged for a long time."

While speaking at the premiere of 'Troop Zero' on Monday, 60-year-old Janney shared, "I kept it very quiet, I'll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago."

Janney shared that she had no idea that Barrett was planning to propose but "I saw the ring one day."

Janney had also recalled, "I went into her room to work on lines [for the show], and then I was like, 'What is that ring on your finger?' I think she was waiting for everyone to notice. ‘Oh, that’s it,’ and then, yeah, it was fun."

Many fans were delighted at the news of Faris' engagement and took to social media to comment on the same.


One fan shared, "Aww, good for her. Congratulations!! My favorite couple" while another fan shared, "If this is true I say congrats to the happy couple!!!!!!!!" A third fan chimed in, "Good and happy for her."

Faris had sparked engagement rumors since November when she was spotted with a diamond ring on her left hand in Los Angeles. Barrett and Faris had started dating in 2017 and the two were first seen together in September that same year.

According to a report by People, a source had shared, "Anna has been hanging out with Michael for weeks. They were hanging out occasionally in September, but started seeing each other more frequently."

Faris had previously been married to Chris Pratt for around eight years before the two ended up splitting up in August 2017. They had finalized their divorce in November 2018 and have a seven-year-old son Jack together. Before being married to Pratt, she had been married to Ben Indra between 2004 and 2008.
