While Pam Beesly may be headed down the aisle with Jim Halpert on NBC's The Office
, her real-life alter ego is altar-bound, too – Jenna Fischer is engaged, PEOPLE confirms.
The actress, 35, got engaged to writer Lee Kirk, 37, on June 30 while both were vacationing in Europe.
Although they've been dating since January of last year, they stepped out publicly
for the first time at the Emmy Awards in September 2008, when Fischer described Kirk to PEOPLE as "my super-cute boyfriend."
This is the first marriage for Kirk. Fischer was previously married to director James Gunn. They divorced in July 2007.
