As reported by Hello! Magazine, the 63-year old actor finally popped life’s most pressing question to his 36-year old girlfriend, Hayley Roberts, following five years of dating.

Yes, that's a 27-year age difference for those keeping track at home.

But whatever. You can't put a number on true love.

"We were both in tears … I genuinely had no idea he was going to do that," Roberts told Hello! of the beautiful gesture. "I'm still overwhelmed."

Way back in 2012, Hasselhoff pretended to propose to Roberts on Twitter. But this is the real thing, people!

Did the significant age gap cause any hesitation on The Hoff's part at all?

"I had a saying, 'You don't get married because you want to live with someone, you get married because you can't live without them,' " he told the publication.

"I felt that way. I knew that I was really unhappy without her. I waited to propose because I thought I was too old for her."

Roberts, meanwhile, says the age gap never bothered her.

"I don't worry about it. I don't want to miss out on being with someone I love because of what might happen down the line."

With the news now public, Hasselhoff took to Twitter to thank fans for their well wishes.

"HELLO ! Thanks for all Congratulations to me & Hayley&GUMBALL &2nd season premiere of Hoff The Record on Dave this Friday ! BEST WEEK EVER!" he wrote.

This will mark Hasselhoff's third trip down the aisle.

He was married to singer Catherine Hickland from 1984 to 1989 and then to Pamela Bach for seven years. He has two children with the latter.
