HBO’s Veep returns Sunday for its second season and it looks like star Reid Scott now has even more to celebrate: the 35-year-old actor is engaged to longtime girlfriend Elspeth Keller.

People reports Scott popped the question with an art deco two-carat diamond ring in a platinum pave setting, designed by Emily Rabinowitz of Blessed Charm Jewelry specifically for Keller.
