Aaand it’s official.

Ãœber-couple Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan have just gotten engaged.

Stars of Mani Ratnam’s latest film Guru, the pair spent this past weekend in Toronto and New York City.

Their engagement—a quiet ceremony held at the Bachchan residence today—comes after many months of speculation that the two were indeed an item. Abishek proposed in New York, after the film premiered in Times Square Friday night. Rai accepted immediately.

No wedding date has been set as yet.

*The New York Times covers the premiere, held at the AMC Empire 25 theater on West 42nd Street.
*Guru debuts in Toronto, creates furor.
*The couple’s visit to the Sankat Mochan Temple last November heavily fuels rumors of a pending engagement.
