Kate Walsh, Alex Young
It's been a big month for Kate Walsh.

The former Grey's Anatomy and current Private Practice star and her 35-year-old Fox production executive boyfriend, Alex Young, announced last week that they are engaged.

The 39-year-old redhead revealed the surprising news during the ABC upfront presentation at New York's Lincoln Center last Tuesday.

"It happened a few days ago. And that's all I can say," said Kate Walsh, beaming and flashing her Neil Lane engagement ring. "I'm on cloud nine."

The news didn't exactly come as a shock to at least one of her castmates.

"I'm upset because she didn't consult me first!" Walsh's new co-star, Tim Daly, told Us Weekly jokingly.

Walsh and Alex Young only recently went public with their whirlwind romance at a  fundraiser for Barack Obama in Los Angeles. Earlier this year, Walsh said she was involved with a special man, but wouldn't reveal his name.

ABC announced earlier this month that Walsh's new show, Private Practice (the Grey's Anatomy spin-off starring her character, Addison Montgomery), had been picked up for a full season and will air on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. in the fall.

Private Practice Quotes

A lot of men have a joy of seeing me naked. A lot! Well, not a lot... I mean.. 8, Well... 11.

Addison

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
