Robin Tunney got some very happy news  but she had a weird way of showing it at first.

Robin, who stars on the CBS drama The Mentalist, is now engaged to boyfriend Nicky Marmet, according to Us Weekly.

Nicky proposed on Christmas of 2012 while the couple was in Rio de Janeiro.

Robin somewhat embarrassingly reveals that, the first time he tried to pop the question, she actually vomited, which is never a good sign.

"He'd made an earlier attempt at the beach in Bahia, but I had what I thought was Dengue Fever, and I threw up over his shoulder when he was about to take the ring out," Robin says. 

"Mercifully, I recovered and was healthy enough to accept the second time," she continues.

This will be Robin's second marriage, as she was hitched to producer/director Bob Gosse from 1997 to 2003.

Nicky is an interior designer, and Robin thinks he did an excellent job picking out the ring.

"The diamond was from his grandmother Mimi's engagement ring," she reveals. "It means so much that it was his grandmother's. She had a long and happy marriage to his grandfather. I like to think it's good luck!"

Us, too! All the best, you two!
