Beard, 27, will marry her boyfriend of three years, photographer Sacha Brown, she tells PEOPLE.
"We are thrilled to be starting the next chapter in our lives together," says Beard. "We are completely in love and to top it off we are best friends. Sacha proposed on Christmas morning in the most perfect way I could imagine. He is truly the man of my dreams and every day I spend with him is a blessing."
"Basically," she adds, "it rocks!"
