Emmy Rossum will reportedly be walking down the aisle next year – and we don’t mean the aisle at the Golden Globes. The Shameless actress and her boyfriend of two years, director Sam Esmail, became engaged over the weekend in Los Angeles.

Sam also directed the 2014 film Comet, which starred his wife-to-be alongside actor Justin Long.

The Phantom Of The Opera actress announced the two were dating when they appeared together at its June 2014 premiere.

Emmy was previously married to music producer Justin Siegel, but the pair divorced after two years in 2010.

Opening up about their divorice afterwards, she told InStyle Hair: “Everyone messes up in relationships and has peaks and valleys in their personal lives.”

“When I realised it wasn’t the end of the world and I would keep on standing, I knew it was going to be OK.”

The 28-year-old plays Fiona in Showtime series Shameless, which originally caused controversy in America when it first aired due to its graphic nature.
