Former Dexter star Julie Benz got engaged to her boyfriend of four years, marketing executive Rich Orosco.
Orosco, 38, proposed to Benz, 39, on Sunday, June 26, with a customized Kwiat cushion-cut diamond and platinum engagement ring in the backyard of their home in Los Angeles.
“It was absolutely perfect,” Benz said.
“The proposal was simple and beautiful – and then I was shocked by the pop-up surprise Mexican fiesta engagement party,” she says, adding, “What girl doesn’t want to be serenaded by a Mariachi band surrounded by close friends and family?”
Benz was previously married to actor John Kassir in 1998, but the couple divorced in 2007.
