Rebecca Romijn and John Stamos couldn't make a full house. Now she's trying again with a new beau. The model-actress and her boyfriend of a year and a half, actor Jerry O'Connell, are engaged, Romijn's publicist, Lewis Kay, confirmed to E! News. "We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the obligatorily giddy couple announced in a joint statement Tuesday. No wedding date has been set.

According to Us Weekly, which first reported the engagement, O'Connell, 31, popped the question over the weekend at his family's New York City apartment, sealing the deal with "a humongous diamond ring." The magazine also quotes an unnamed source close to the couple saying Romijn, 32, "is not pregnant." Baby rumors have dogged the couple for months.

This will be the second matrimonial go-round for Romijn and first for Crossing Jordan star O'Connell. The couple met on the Vancouver set of the Ben Affleck romantic comedy Man About Town in April 2004, just after Romijn's split from Stamos following six years of marriage. She finalized her divorce from the former Full House star in March and reverted back to her nonhyphenated maiden name.

The longtime bachelor O'Connell, whose credits include Stand by Me and Sliders, was previously in a longterm relationship with E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi. He had also been publicly linked with former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Sarah Michelle Gellar. The couple are now back in Los Angeles for some heavy-duty wedding planning--and their respective day jobs. Aside from sharing credits on Man About Town, which is slated to open in early 2006, and the indie romantic comedy The Alibi, due out this year, each has several solo projects in the works.

Romijn is reprising her role as the blue-hued, shape-shifting Mystique in the X-Men 3, which is currently shooting. She is also set to star in the WB's midseason replacement Pepper Dennis as the titular ambitious reporter. O'Connell, meanwhile, has three films in the pipeline, including the computer-animated feature Cat Tale, in which he provides voice-over work alongside Sean Astin and David Cross. O'Connell returns as Detective Woody Hoyt for Crossing Jordan's fifth season.

Actor Jerry O'Connell ditched his initial plan to propose to his fiancee Rebecca Romijn in a sports stadium, because he feared getting rejected before thousands of spectators. The Kangaroo Jack star asked Romijn for her hand in marriage earlier this month (September 2005) in the New York City apartment he grew up in, after abandoning plans for a more grand proposal.

He says, "It's kind of scary because you're popping the question, it's like a pop quiz, it's a surprise question. So when (I was) first planning it I was like, 'I'm gonna do it at a baseball game, I'm gonna do it at a Yankees game or Rebecca's from Berkeley, do it in Oakland.' "And then you realise, because you're popping the question, what if your significant other says no in front of 50,000 people? So I (opted) to do it very privately where if no happened I would be the only one who knew about it. It was just the two of us."

When Jerry O'Connell proposed to Rebecca Romijn on Sept. 17, no one was more surprised than his closest friends. "When they first started dating, Jerry complained that Rebecca was too wild," says an insider. "They almost broke up over it." But the gorgeous X-Men star, 32, promised to curb her party-girl ways. The insider says that once Jerry, 31, saw the change in her, he got down on bended knee. Still, his pals are skeptical. "He's a big pushover," says the insider. "We just don't want her to take advantage of him." Regardless of what his friends think, Jerry is planning to tie the knot with Rebecca in Long Island, N.Y., next spring or fall.

Actress Rebecca Romijn and fiance Jerry O'Connell decided to plan a wacky Christmas celebration when their families met for the first time last year (05). The families gathered at a lodge in Northern California to get to know each other better and decided to see who could create the most outrageously decorated Christmas sweater. She explains, "Rather than do Christmas presents between a bunch of people who didn't know each other, we decided to do crazy, ugly Christmas sweaters. "The idea was to buy whatever sweater you wanted and then add embellishments. "Let me tell you, Christmas dinner was something else. We were in a restaurant and my dad made my sister and I wear sweaters with Christmas lights attached to them. "He had an extension cord and he plugged us into the floor at the restaurant and we sat there flashing away. "Jerry's mother had on a sweater that had a giant branch sewn to it with a bird that was supposed to be a partridge in a pear tree. It was pretty funny."
