When Brie Larson accepted her first Oscar for her performance in Room earlier this year, she mentioned her boyfriend, saying: "Alex Greenwald, I love you." And now, the couple is engaged.

Larson's rep confirmed the big news to People (opens in new tab). The actress has been dating the Phantom Planet singer for a couple of years, according to the outlet.
