O’Dowd, who played a cop in this summer’s mega-hit, ‘Bridesmaids,’ followed up his tweet with another saying, “Aw, thanks for all the congrats guys. Feelin the twitter love today. Very happy & lucky boy. #engaged.”

O’Dowd’s new fiance took to Twitter as well, channeling Beyonce’s hit by saying "I guess he liked it, coz he put a ring on it #engaged.” RTE reports that Porter said that O’Dowd proposed on the day after Christmas at Havelet Bay, Guernsey.
O’Dowd is currently in works for a new show on Sky 1 about growing up in 80s Ireland, entitled ‘Moone Boy.’
