“We’ve only actually known each other since the end of June,” the Hairspray star told host Andy Cohen on February 23. “So it’s just been about six months. He was a booty call for a few months there. He is wonderful. Everyone in my life who’s met him just gets it. We’re great together.”

The documentary filmmaker detailed her steamy proposal — and how it caught her off guard. “I was naked in the jacuzzi with my man on the first night that we were in my new Malibu home, and so it was romantic, it was very spontaneous and I couldn’t be happier,” Lake spilled at the time, adding there was “no ring yet.”

This won’t be Lake’s first trip down the aisle. She was previously married to Rob Sussman from 1994-2004 and Christian Evans from 2012-2015.
