Congratulations are in order for Vanessa Ray, who currently stars on CBS's primetime drama BLUE BLOODS, but soap fans will remember as AS THE WORLD TURNS' Teri — she recently became engaged to boyfriend Landon Beard!

According to Hello Magazine, Beard proposed to the actress at one of their favorite spots in New York City, Pier 84 on the Hudson River, despite the frigid East Coast temperatures. And photos of the actual proposal were taken by a conveniently-placed tourist who was revealed to be Ray's good friend Kelly Sullivan (Sage, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS)! "Totally unbeknownst to me, he had Kelly fly out from L.A.," she confided to the magazine. "She was disguised in a black wig pretending to be a tourist taking pictures during the whole thing."

Best wishes to the happy couple for a lifetime together!
