Additionally, Susan's This Is Us co-star Melanie Liburd also commented on her announcement. "So beautiful! So happy for you both," Liburd shared on Instagram.

The 37-year-old star's fiancé also shared the announcement on Instagram, writing the same caption and re-posting his leading lady's images.

The couple has kept details on their relationship extremely private, so it's unclear when they began dating. They've made a few red carpet appearances together, with their most recent public outing being in April. They posed for photos during The Apollo screening at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.

Despite being notoriously private, it looks like they were eager to share their engagement with all of their fans.

Congrats to the pair on this exciting new chapter!
