Odd couple Jessica Lowndes and Jon Lovitz took their relationship public over the weekend by posting several photos to Instagram that revealed their status as a couple — a seemingly engaged one at that.

Though there's speculation that the engagement may be a hoax, the "90210" starlet prefaced the big announcement by explaining that she's excited to "finally" share this secret.

The actress showed off her ring — along with a huge smile indicating her happiness — in several posts.

Even though haters have been aggressively weighing in on the couple's 31-year age gap, Lovitz and Lowndes haven't let the comments dull their sparkle.

Lovitz, who posted pictures of "Easter with [his] bunny" didn't appear to be fazed by the negative comments they prompted, but rather amused by them.
