According to People magazine the two got engaged in Sun Valley, Idaho, where they had been spending their 10-day vacations over the holiday, Huff Post reports. The source added, “They are very happy together.”

Kopelman is reported to asked ‘The Charlie Angel’ to marry him with a colorless, radiant-cut ring under 4 carats and surrounded by a diamond band designed by Graff.

The actress and Kopelman, whose father is a former CEO of Chanel, Arie Kopelman, was first seen together last November. But they never officially confirmed their relationship.

The ‘Never Been Kissed’ star began dating Kopelman last year after breaking with longtime on/off boyfriend Justin Long.

And by September, Barrymore and Kopelman were noticed smooching while sightseeing in Rome, though the two have maintained a relatively low profile since.

According to US Weekly, the two dated briefly in 2010 but split up at the time, reuniting the following year.

And, finally, in October, a Barrymore pal told that the former Hollywood wild child was “yearning to get married and have kids,” with Kopelman poised to propose “around the one-year mark of their dating.”

“He’s madly in love and knows she’s The One,” the insider said of her handsome guy.

As Barrymore’s friend mentioned, “Drew has a long history of falling for a guy very fast and overdoing it. Her friends have seen it many times.”

Her official relationships with a bar owner Jeremy Thomas in 1994 as well as comedian Tom Green in 2001 were short-lived – both lasted less than five months.

Among the actress’s boyfriends was also The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.

Moreover, according to the Daily Mail, the celebrity was engaged to Leland Hayward at the age of 16, and the following year was engaged to musician Jamie Walters – but neither resulted in marriage.

In the September 2010 issue of Marie Claire, Barrymore spoke about her attitude to love. “I’m happy to say that, at 35 years old, I feel I know less than ever,” she said. “But in a liberating way. I’m trying to figure out how to make relationships work. The only thing I know is that there aren’t any rules. There should be no infrastructure on how a couple is supposed to work. Life isn’t like that.”

MTV said, that when asked about true love the actress said, “It smells good — like somebody’s skin. It’s amazing to me that, when you fall in love with someone, you just start to love the way they smell. If I have to go away from someone, I say, ‘Wear this T-shirt for five days in a row, then I’m going to take it with me.’ “

Barrymore’s rep has already confirmed the news that the actress had already started planning her wedding, ignoring her friends to spend all of her time with Will.

 Barrymore’s friend told In Touch Weekly: “Drew’s talking marriage,” while adding, “She’s totally smitten with Will.”

One more source, close to the two, added: “She can’t keep her hands off of him,” and “Drew wants to have babies, and she thinks Will is the one.”
