1 of 16: Rider Strong and Alexandra Barreto appear in a photo the actor's rep provided on Dec. 27, 2012, the day he announced the two are engaged.

This will be the first marriage for the 33-year-old actor. Strong said in a statement via his rep to OTRC.com that he proposed to Barreto on December 23, while her parents were visiting for the holidays.

'I took her for a walk under the redwoods on the property where I grew up in Northern California,' he said. 'It was pouring rain, but it didn't look like it was going to stop anytime soon, so I just decided to go for it.' ( Photo / Rider Strong)
