Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery has apparently unofficially announced her engagement to Irish boyfriend John Dineen. The couple have been together since September, 2013, but it was just this month she announced the news of her engagement to the Downton Abbey cast.

Hello! magazine is reporting Dockery is absolutely ecstatic about the engagement and, of course, about her upcoming wedding.

Michelle Dockery is known for playing Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey, one of the UK’s most successful TV series of all time.

You may also remember her as Susan Sto Helit in the TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s amazing book ‘Hogfather‘. And yes, she was perfect in it.

The sixth season of Downton Abbey will be filmed this year, with Michelle Dockery saying she will be playing Lady Mary Crawley right until the last episode of the TV series is filmed. She loves the part that much.

Meanwhile, no word on the actual date of Michelle Dockery’s wedding to John Dineen, but isn’t an engagement nice enough news for the present?
