Brooke Burns has a new hair color and, more importantly, a new ring!

The blond-again You Deserve It cohost flashed her diamond yesterday on Good Day L.A. and confirmed that she is indeed planning to tie the knot with Warrior director Gavin O'Connor.

Burns didn't bring the subject up, but one of her interviewers couldn't help but exclaim, "You're married?!" when she spied the former Baywatch babe's ring finger.

"Engaged!" Burns squealed, flashing a megawatt grin to go with the bauble. She wouldn't name names, however...

"He's a writer-director," she said discreetly, though it wasn't much of a leap to get from A to O'Connor.

Plus, Burns added, her fiancé has a little girl a year and a half younger than her own daughter, Madison (with ex-husband Julian McMahon).

"On our third date," Burns recalled, "they were like, 'We're sisters, so whatever you guys [want to do], we want to be sisters.'"

As the Good Day L.A. hosts couldn't help repeating several times—that's great news, because Burns deserves it.

The actress and model was previously engaged to Bruce Willis for a short time before he started dating current wife Emma Heming. In 2005, the usually brunette beauty broke her neck in a diving accident and needed major surgery and physical therapy to get her body back on track.

All is well now, though, and we wish her the best of luck!
