Kirsten Vangsness is getting married!
The 43-year-old Criminal Minds star is engaged to actor/writer Keith Hanson! “He’s the perfect partner for me and I feel like we evolve,” Kristen said of her fiancé on Monday, Nov. 23. “When you’re so into somebody and you get to just mush up next to them—that’s the best part of it.”
According to People, Keith popped the question a few weeks ago surrounded by the couple’s family and close friends. Now, Kristen is eager to start planning her big day!

“How hard can it be?” the actress said of wedding planning. “He’s more particular than I am, which is going to be fine, but he has many more requirements than I do. It might take a little while longer, but it’s a quality problem.”
“I want a plaid dress that’s so cool I could wear it to something else,” Kristen revealed. “I want to wear my wedding dress and then when I get nominated for my first big award I want to wear that, so people could be like, ‘She wore her wedding dress!'”
This will be Kristen’s first marriage, though she was previously engaged to her partner of seven-years, Melanie Goldstein, before the pair split in 2013.
Congrats to Kristen and Keith on their engagement!
