Both sides of the happy couple made the news known through their Instagram accounts on Wednesday (Sept. 11). Vega, 25, was the more direct of the two. She posted a photo of Pena with a caption that read:
“Hello fiance …”
For his part, Pena didn’t explicitly talk about an engagement. It was the photo that made things clear — Vega’s engagement ring is rather obvious in the Instagram, captioned:
“My angel!!! @vegaalexa awesome road trip so far!! Now we just need to get back …”
The engagement was later confirmed by JustJared.com.
Vega, who was previously married to Sean Covel, is best known for playing Carmen Cortez in the “Spy Kids” movies and will next appear in “Machete Kills.”
