Spy Kids” star Alexa Vega is clearly a kid no more, as she announced her engagement to Carlos Pena this week.

According to Just Jared, Vega first shared the news via social media, releasing a photo of Pena, best known for his role on Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush,” with a caption reading, “Hello fiancé…”

The pair began dating last year and recently took a road trip, which it seems might be when the big proposal went down.

In a picture that Pena shared of his new fiancé from the trip, Vega’s impressive engagement ring can be spotted on her left hand.

The 25-year-old actress was previously married to producer Sean Covel until 2012. Vega will next appear in “Machete Kills,” in which she reunited with “Spy Kids” director Robert Rodriguez. The film also stars Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lady Gaga in her film debut.

What do you think of the big news? Is it too soon or is it a case of “when it’s right, it’s right?” Let us know!
