US Weekly reports that the pair have made their relationship more official after she accepted his recent proposal.

The Weeds star was first seen publicly with the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy in May 2012. And, despite the age gap (and huge height difference!), the pair have been dating ever since and live together in New York.
