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.

Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

I think I can see your arteries closing up from here.
