Christian Slater has finally tracked down some true romance.

The actor announced on Jimmy Fallon this week that he’s engaged to Brittany Lopez, sharing a hilarious story of how they met and what he thought of his now-fiancee at the time.

“I thought I had just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement, so I was coming over to say congratulations, but it turns out it was her aunt, and she was just trying to help her aunt capture the beauty and the romance of the moment. She was making a joke, and I witnessed it, and it intrigued me, and the next thing I knew, we were hanging out in the Everglades.”

This will be the second marriage for Slater. He shares two kids with ex Ryan Haddon, Jaden, 13, and Eliana, 11.
