Dane Cook is engaged to longtime girlfriend Kelsi Taylor.

After five years of dating, the comedian popped the question on July 13 at York Beach, Maine, a place that holds special meaning for the couple.

"When we started dating, we went there on our first trip together, so to return five years later was meaningful to us," Cook tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"It's a place I spent much time in growing up so I have such fond memories there. After my mother passed away, she asked me and my siblings to release her at her favorite spot, the breathtaking location, at the tip of Cape Neddick Point, Nubble Lighthouse, where our vacation cottage is located. It felt like the right place."

Taylor added that the engagement came as such a shock to her and was a "pinch-me moment ... I hugged my mom and couldn't wait to FaceTime the rest of my family and share the news. My family loves him so much, so they were beyond excited for us."

While Cook is well-known for his roles in Good Luck Chuck and My Best Friend's Girl, here's everything to know about his fiancée.
