Katherine & Future Husband
Izzie Stevens might be back on the market after the Grey's Anatomy season finale, but (sorry guys) actress Katherine Heigl is officially taken.

The 27-year old is now engaged to singer Josh Kelley, her representative confirmed to People Magazine. No wedding date has been set.

The couple met last year when Heigl appeared in a video for Kelley's song "Only You." The singer was immediately taken aback by Katherine's presence and wouldn't let her go home.

"At the end of the shoot, I said, 'You're gonna go eat dinner with us, and you can't say no.' So we ate, drank and just started hanging out after that," Kelly said of that day.

Kelley recently wrote a tune, "Katie's Song," for Heigl, which the actress found incredibly heartwarming and romantic.

"There is really nothing more romantic than that. It was one of the most thrilling and romantic things that I've ever experienced, and it makes me really like him bad," Heigl said.

Heigl rose to fame this spring as her Grey's Anatomy character, Dr. Stevens, became romantically involved with a terminal heart patient, Denny Duquette, in a plot line that riveted millions of viewers.

She grew up in New Canaan, Conn., and worked as a model before embarking on an acting career. Heigl's first taste of stardom came as another Isabel (Evans) on the WB series Roswell. She has appeared on the covers of TV Guide, Maxim, Teen and FHM. Katherine concentrated on movies for several years after the series' cancellation in 2002.

She last appeared on the big screen in The Ringer (2005), and is now filming the comedy Knocked Up during her hiatus from Grey's Anatomy. While we jokingly reported that Katherine was pregnant due to the nature of that role, is an actual baby on the way now that she's getting hitched? We'll see.

A native of Augusta, Ga., Kelley released his debut album, For the Ride Home, in 2003. His second album, Almost Honest, came out last year. His latest, Just Say The Word, is scheduled to hit stores July 24. An emerging, mellow singer / songwriter who maintains a strong following, Kelly has been likened to Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and John Mayer. Visit his official site!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
