maria belloCoyote Ugly star Maria Bello has got engaged to boyfriend Bryn Mosser after he proposed last week.

The couple announced their engagement in the newspaper of Maria’s hometown in Pennsylvania, The Norristown Times Herald and noted that they “fell in love over a sheer passion of politics, Africa and cryptozoology.”

The actress, who was Golden Globe nominated for her roles in The Cooler and A History of Violence, had previously said she’d “always [been] anti-marriage” before meeting Bryn: “I didn’t understand monogamy. I couldn’t figure out how that could last.

“And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone - of having a partner in life.”
