The former couple began dating in August 2013, after meeting on the set of the Disney Channel series Liv & Maddie, and are scheduled to appear on the show together through 2017.

In April, McCartan revealed the engagement via an Instagram post dedicated to his "new fiancée."

"I can't believe I get to call you that. Thanks for saying yes," McCartan captioned a sweet red carpet pic of he and Cameron.

Besides going through a major split, the exes have separate TV musical projects in the works. McCartan co-stars in the Rocky Horror Picture Show remake premiering on Fox on Oct. 20, while Cameron will appear in NBC's upcoming Hairspray Live! musical, which debuts on Dec. 7.
