  • "Engaged to tha love of my life," Bynes captioned the photo, which featured her own hand, sporting a massive diamond engagement ring, as well as the hand of another person (presumably her fiancé) who appears to be wearing a gold wedding band.

Amanda Bynes (opens in new tab) is engaged, apparently.

The 33-year-old actress has been largely absent from the public eye for several years amid reports that she was struggling with mental health issues and drug abuse. She took to Instagram on Friday (Valentine's Day (opens in new tab), appropriately enough) to share the news in the form of a ring shot highlighting her massive diamond engagement ring.

"Engaged to tha love of my life," she captioned the picture, which also featured another hand (presumably her fiancé's), wearing what appears to be a gold wedding band. As for who the aforementioned "love of her life" is, Bynes didn't specify (opens in new tab), instead choosing to leave the identity of her soulmate a mystery.

Although she's rarely spotted in public, Bynes has been moderately active (opens in new tab) on Instagram in recent months. Last week, she shared a mirror selfie that appears to have been taken in her bedroom:

And in December, she shared a selfie that offered a glimpse of two friends or family members in the background, along with the Bynes' family Christmas tree:

Early that month, she shared an outdoor selfie that showed off her then-pastel-colored hair (opens in new tab) (which appears to have since faded to blonde):

Congratulations to Amanda (opens in new tab) and her mystery love. We wish them nothing but the best.
