"Coming back home today with my fiance!!! NYE proposal in Paris," the bride-to-be wrote, according to Us Weekly. "Couldn't be more perfect. I'm so happy and excited and honored to share my life with the most amazing man on the planet."

RumorFix.com posted a picture of the engagement ring that Parsekian reportedly shared with friends, along with a snapshot of the couple holding a sign that says "bride + groom to be."

Parsekian is the president and co-founder of the Kind Campaign, which works to bring "awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl crimes."

Paul won an Emmy for playing troubled addict/drug dealer Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad" in 2010. His latest film, "Smashed," will debut at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.
