Disney Channel stars Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan are engaged.

On Thursday, McCartan, 22, dedicated his 1,000th Instagram picture to Cameron, 20. The actor referred to her as his "fiancée," writing, "I can't believe I get to call you that. Thanks for saying yes." Cameron has yet to publicly comment on the engagement or share a picture of her ring via social media. The two met as co-stars on the hit sitcom Liv and Maddie and took their romance public in August 2013.

This will be the first marriage for both Cameron and McCartan.

Liv and Maddie's Jessica Marie Garcia is already teasing the bride-to-be on Twitter:

From the beginning, their love was written in the stars—which just so happens to be the title of their debut single. Known to fans as The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, Cameron and McCarten hit the road in 2015 as a musical duo. The pop stars released a lyric video for their new single, "Someone You Like," on Thursday.

Last spring, McCartan talked to J-14 about their first date. "I took her out to dinner, [then] I took her out to frozen yogurt, and we went to this place in Hollywood called Bourgeois Pig and got some cider. We sat in this really cute room and just drank some cider and talked," said the actor, who next appears in Rocky Horror Picture Show. "Then I took her up to this place up in the Hollywood Hills that has basically a panoramic 360 view of all of Hollywood and all of the valley. So, we saw all the lights, the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Park Observatory, and it was so romantic. We were up there until 3 in the morning, just talking and looking at the lights. Then I took her home and it was the most perfect, most romantic first date ever."

Cameron felt a spark the moment they kissed. As she once told Fanlala, "We went to this park, because he's just like Romeo, and he was just like—I'm so grossed out by how cute he is—but he picked me up one day from my apartment. He had a car and he was a hot older boy. This was back before we were like really, really dating. We were just sort of seeing what happened. He took me to this park underneath a tree at sunset. He brought this guitar and he was like, 'Do you wanna come write songs with me in the park?' I was like, 'OK!...You're what movies are about!'"

At one point, "I leaned in to kiss him on the cheek, and he turned his head really quickly and kissed me, because he knew that I was too shy to just kiss him. So, he like tricked me into it...I don't remember this—because in my mind it was magic and sparkles—but I apparently turned away and squealed and turned bright red."

The Descendants actress admitted she was "really embarrassed" by her behavior. "He said that was the moment that he knew that he was going to have feelings for me for a long time," Cameron explained. "He was like, 'I totally fell for you when you freaked out when I kissed you.' He tells that story a lot better than I do because I make myself sound like a gremlin and he makes it sound really cute."
