Former child star Frankie Muniz is engaged to marry his longtime girlfriend.
The Malcolm in the Middle actor proposed to his partner, Elycia Turnbow, and announced their happy news on his page after she said yes.

He tweeted, “After 4 years together, I’m so happy to be ENGAGED to the love of my life @ElyciaMarie!!!”

On her Twitter page, a delighted Turnbow confirmed their engagement, adding, “Frankie Muniz I love you!!! It’s official… I’m engaged!!!”

The engagement news comes eight months after police were called to the couple’s Arizona home following reports of an altercation between the pair.

The matter was quickly dismissed by Muniz’s publicists. His spokesperson, Lauren Tobin, told, “As far as they are concerned, their issues are resolved… Neither one is interested in finger-pointing at the other. It was a situation that escalated beyond a point that it needed to be. If anything, they will look back at this as a learning opportunity.”

No charges were filed over the incident.
