Look who's been cooking up a little romance on the side!

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is engaged to his activist girlfriend Lauren Parsekian, the Emmy-winning actor's rep confirmed Monday to E! News.

Obviously, Paul is nothing like the messed-up meth dealer he so excellently portrays on TV, or else how could he land a good girl like Parsekian?!

Parsekian is president and cofounder of the Kind Campaign, which serves to raise awareness and treat victims of bullying and crimes committed by girls against other girls.

In 2010, she directed the documentary Finding Kind, featuring herself and TKC cofounder Molly Thompson traveling across America to shed light on the troubling epidemic that their program seeks to put an end to.

A source tells us that the couple has been dating for less than a year, "but [they] have been really lovey-dovey from the start." Paul popped the question in Paris on New Year's Eve. "The ring is huge and gorgeous," says our source, adding that Laura appears "super happy."

The 32-year-old actor's latest project, the indie drama Smashed, will screen at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival later this month.
