She's getting married! Becca Tobin, also known as Kitty Wilde on Glee, announced that she's tying the knot with entrepreneurial boyfriend Zach Martin. The actress was all smiles on Instagram as she shared a photo of her and her new fiancГ©, who were spotted at the Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta over the weekend.
Tobin, 30, is finally moving on after her ex-boyfriend, Matt Bendik, tragically died in July 2014. "I got engaged!" she announced on her LadyGang podcast with co-hosts Jac Vanek and The Insider's Keltie Knight . "Every single person thought I was kidding. I thought he was kidding when he had the ring in front of my face." Martin is from Atlanta, and the two met through mutual friends, according to ET Online.
The former Glee star shared with her fans that her beau's proposal was very low-key, as she dislikes over-the-top proposals and social media tributes. "Hashtag: so blessed. You'll never see a post where I say 'I'm so lucky to marry my best friend,' any of that garbage. It makes my stomach turn. We don't have an extravagant story. I told him I'd castrate him if he did anything crazy. I really didn't want a thing so it was really perfect for me," she said.
She went on to say that the part of being engaged that she isn't a fan of is the "proposal sharing" piece. "This hurts me so much because this is the part of being engaged that I don't want, so this is painful for me." And even with that bling on her finger, she didn't share any lovey-dovey-proposal-filled caption.
As far as her pals, former Glee co-star Lea Michele has been an integral part of Tobin's recovery over the death of her ex-boyfriend, and the songstress BFFs were recently spotted hanging out at an LA Lakers game - all giggles and selfies (but unfortunately no singing).GC Images

Lea Michele, who tragically lost her own longtime love when her Glee costar and IRL boyfriend Cory Monteith died in 2013, hasn't publicly commented on Tobin and Martin's engagement yet, but we're sure she's just as excited. Throughout both of their losses, they have relied on each other, which has helped them both move on - and now, get married!

Her new plus one was actually a recent guest on her podcast as well, in which he sang her praises (and TMI-habits). "Our special guest is a super famous dude named Zach Martin who is crazy enough to date me - and even crazier to come on the LadyGang and answer all your burning questions," she laughed. Her podcast costars warmed Martin up, asking what it's like to date Tobin. His reply? "It's like dating a man. She's like a dude. She farts a lot - a lot of bowel movements." Not what you'd expect from prissy Kitty Wilde, that's for sure. Still, he shared on a serious note that dating Tobin is "really good."
"I've never seen Becca smile so big," Knight said on the podcast. "She must like you."
As far as the ring, we haven't seen an up-close-and-personal shot of it yet, but if you look closely at their Instagram snaps, there's a hint of sparkle that's waiting to make its #ringselfie debut. Even though it's not blasted all over social media for the world to see, it's clear they're pretty excited about spending the rest of their lives together.
