Former Melrose Place
heartthrob Andrew Shue and the Today
show’s Amy Robach are engaged, a spokesperson for Today
confirms to PEOPLE.
Both Shue and Robach are recently divorced, a source says. Shue, 42, had been married to floral designer Jennifer Hageney since 1994. Robach, 36, was married to Tim McIntosh. The source says both of them have been separated from their former spouses for about a year and started dating this spring after being set up by friends.
In April, Shue and Robach were spotted walking hand-in-hand on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, laughing and kissing.
The two were engaged last week, the source says. "They're both very happy."
A former Miss Georgia contestant, Robach is also a national correspondent for NBC Nightly News. Since his days on Melrose
, Shue has co-founded the nonprofit foundation Do Something, an organization that encourages volunteerism, and the social networking site CafeMom.
The couple's engagement was first reported in the New York Post
