It only takes a quick glance through her Instagram to see that Jodie Sweetin is smitten.

Make that officially smitten.

"We can confirm that Jodie Sweetin got engaged to Justin Hodak last night and they are both thrilled," a rep for Sweetin told PEOPLE Friday.

Just last month, the actress, 34, who stars in next month's Fuller House on Netflix, told PEOPLE about her man.

"We met through mutual friends years ago and we reconnected a little over two years ago," she said. "It's been really good ever since."

Hodak accompanied Sweetin to a taping of her upcoming series, as well as to various events for the show over the past few months.
