When Maria Bello first met Clare Munn, she had an "immediate connection."
"I didn't think of it as romantic or sexual," Bello says in a New York Times column published Sunday titled Coming Out As A Modern Family. "She was one of the most beautiful, charming, brilliant, and funny people I had ever met, but it didn't occur to me that we could perhaps choose to love each other romantically."
The actress has a 12-year-old son, Jackson, from her former relationship with Dan McDermott and says she struggled with how to tell her only child about her relationship with a woman.

Taylor Lautner grabbed dinner with Glee star Dianna Agron and a woman and a man, who looked like "agent types," an onlooker tells us. The foursome met at Gjelina in Venice, Calif., and Lautner kept busy chatting with Agron while the men lounged at their table. Lautner was chilled out, while Agron was more animated during their low-key meal. Lautner was also attentive to his fans: he graciously posed with several females who approached his table. Also at the restaurant (dining separately) that night: Neve Campbell and Maria Bello. – Marisa Laudadio

Actress Maria Bello and boyfriend Bryn Mooser are engaged, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor star, 41, and Mooser, 28, a writer, announced their engagement in Bello's hometown newspaper, The Norristown Times Herald, in Norristown, Pa, which said the couple "fell in love over a sheer passion of politics, Africa and cryptozoology."
Bello told the New York Post's Page Six Magazine she "was always anti-marriage. I didn't understand monogamy. I couldn't figure out how that could last. And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone – of having a partner in life."
