Former star of NBC’s Scrubs, Donald Faison, has gotten engaged to Cacee Cobb, who happens to be the best friend of Jessica Simpson. On Friday, Faison hinted about his engagement with the following tweet: “If you like it then you better put a Ring on it. –Beyonce.”

Cobb saw the message, re-tweeted it and added, “If she likes it then she better say YES!!”

Jessica Simpson then took to her Twitter account and congratulated her best friend for getting engaged, attaching a photo of Cobb’s engagement ring. “Congrats @caceecobb! I love u and ur man,” Simpson wrote.

Cobb sporadically made appearances on Simpson’s MTV reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica from 2003-2005, which featured Simpson’s then-husband, Nick Lachey.

Zach Braff, who also starred on Scrubs along with Faison, also took to the social media website to congratulate the couple. “Congrats to @donald_faison and @caceecobb on their engagement,” Braff wrote. “Just wish I was there to run around you both with sparklers.”

Faison was previously married to Lisa Askey from 2001-2005 before they divorced. This is the first marriage for Cobb.
