Ginnifer_GoodwinGinnifer Goodwin is full of love these days. The “Big Love” actress is engaged to Joey Kern, who is known for his roles in the films “Cabin Fever” and “Grind.”

A rep for Goodwin confirmed that the 32-year-old HBO star, who appeared in the 2009 romantic-comedy “He’s Just Not That Into You,” got engaged to Kern, 34, earlier this month. “Joey emailed all his friends back on the 12th and gave them the good news,” the rep told Usmagazine. Goodwin and Kern dated for about two years before the engagement. “We couldn’t be happier than to celebrate our engagement over the holidays with our families,” the couple told People. Kern reportedly helped design the engagement ring he gave to Goodwin. Sources said the couple are planning to get married in the fall.

Goodwin plays Margene Heffman, the third wife in a polygamous family, in HBO’s “Big Love,” which is to start its final season on January 16. Kern, on the other hand, is working on a pilot called “Playing with Guns” with Danny Masterson.
