Julie Benz is getting married! The fan fave TV star, who played vampire Darla in the Whedonverse shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and Dexter Morgan's doomed wife Rita on Dexter, said yes when her man Rich Orosco popped the question, her rep confirms to E! News.

So how did he propose, and what's next for the newly engaged twosome?

The marketing exec asked for the No Ordinary Family star's hand in marriage at a Mexican-fiesta-themed surprise party at their house in Los Angeles. The engagement ring was a "customized Kwiat cushion-cut diamond and platinum engagement ring—complete with a diamond frame and milgrain edge band."


No wedding date has yet been announced.

Benz was previously married to actor John Kassir from 1998 to 2007.
