James Gandolfini and his girlfriend, Deborah Lin, are engaged, PEOPLE has confirmed.

“Reps are happy to announce that he and his girlfriend Deborah Lin recently got engaged during the holidays,” a statement released by HBO said Thursday.

According to a source on perezhilton.com – where the news was first announced – the Sopranos star “popped the question while in the Bahamas … They’re thrilled.”

Gandolfini, 46, who divorced wife Marcella in 2002 after nearly four years of marriage, became briefly engaged to Lora Somoza in 2004. That relationship ended in February 2005.
