Linda Cardellini is engaged to longtime love Steve Rodriguez.

The "Mad Men" actress - who plays Don Draper's neighbor and former (for now) mistress on the AMC drama - announced the happy news during an appearance on "The View" on Friday.

"I was surprised that it was happening at that moment," the 37-year-old former "Freaks and Geeks" star said, of Steve's proposal the night before (Thursday).

Steve popped the question in front of a few of Linda's family members and friends - including her former "ER" co-star, Maura Tierney.

"We were actually with some of the people I love most: my sister, and my cousins and one of my best friends, Maura," she said. "We were sitting and he started getting choked up and then got on his knee. It was very beautiful."
