Frankie Muniz and Elycia Turnbow

Frankie Muniz popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, publicist Elycia Marie Turnbow – and she said yes.
"After 4 years together, I'm so happy to be ENGAGED to the love of my life @ElyciaMarie!!!" the former Malcolm in the Middle
star, 25, Tweeted
"It's official.. I'm engaged!" Turnbow also Tweeted
the same day.
The couple have apparently reconciled after going through a rough patch
earlier this year. Police were called to their home in Phoenix in February to investigate an incident
in which Muniz allegedly wielded a gun and punched Turnbow in the back of the head.
"Neither one is interested in finger-pointing at the other," Muniz's rep said at the time. "It was a situation that escalated beyond a point that it needed to be. If anything, they will look back at this as a learning opportunity."
