Jordana Brewster is engaged.
The Fast and the Furious star, 41, announced her engagement to boyfriend Mason Morfit on Tuesday, sharing a picture of herself wearing a sparkler on her ring finger as she cozied up next to the 44-year-old tech CEO.
"❤️JB soon to be JBM❤️," Brewster wrote on her Instagram, referencing her initials. A representative for the actress confirmed the couple's engagement to PEOPLE.

Brewster was first linked to Morfit last July, when the pair were spotted holding hands during an outing in Santa Monica, California.
Morfit is the CEO of ValueAct Capital, an investment company, and was formerly on the board of directors for Microsoft from 2014 until he stepped down in 2017.
In a candid essay for Glamour published this June, Brewster revealed that she had actually met Morfit four years prior when she and the businessman were still married to other people. The two reconnected in San Francisco four days after Brewster and Form, 52, decided to separate, according to the actress.

"When I landed, Mason was at the bottom of the escalator, holding a sign with my name on it. My heart was fluttering like a hummingbird. I felt at once super panicked but also strangely grounded," she recalled. "During a time when the world avoided all contact, when it was mandated that everyone stay six feet apart, Mason and I blended into each other. I thought, Please kiss me. And he did."

From that day forward, Brewster said that they started seeing each other regularly and began "thinking about how to blend our families."
"Ultimately my divorce wasn't my fault or my ex-husband's fault. At 27, I was not ready to be emotionally open or vulnerable. I wasn't ready to really let someone in. At 40, I cracked myself open and put it all on the line," Brewster wrote in her essay. "With that came the collateral damage of my first marriage, but by risking it all I gained the love of my life."
