Christian Slater has confirmed he has got engaged to his girlfriend.

The True Romance star popped the question to Brittany Lopez after dating for three years, he revealed during an appearance on US show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

The 43-year-old also joked that he thought Brittany wasn't into men when he first saw her walking past at a resort in Miami four years ago.

He said: "This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady. I was sitting in my usual spot, eating my oatmeal... and this spot was famous for people proposing to each other. It was very, very nice. So she's there, and the next thing I know, she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady..."

The Bullet To The Head actor went on: "I thought I had just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement, so I was coming over to say congratulations, but it turns out it was her aunt, and she was just trying to help her aunt capture the beauty and the romance of the moment.

"She was making a joke, and I witnessed it, and it intrigued me, and the next thing I knew, we were hanging out in the Everglades."

This will be Christian's second marriage - he divorced Ryan Haddon, the mother of his two children, in 2007.
