Naya Rivera isn't the only Glee star to get engaged this month! Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Shannon Beiste on the FOX hit, proposed to her longtime love Bridgett Casteen on Friday, Oct. 4, near Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

"Thank you @dotmariejones for making me the happiest woman in the world. #engaged," Casteen, 39, tweeted. She also shared a picture of the proposal via her Twitter account.

The 49-year-old actress popped the question during Anaheim Gay Days, an annual event that draws more than 30,000 LGBT visitors and allies to the family theme park. "It's the happiest day of my life," Jones tells The Advocate. "I never thought I'd find somebody that is so loving and kind."

Jones tweeted a picture of herself and Casteen the next day, writing, "SO HAPPY!!"

This will be the first union for Jones. Casteen, meanwhile, has three children from a previous marriage.
