Kate Walsh Engaged To Studio Exec

Kate Walsh has plenty of reasons to celebrate this week.

ABC announced that she'll star in a "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff in the fall, and the 39-year-old actress told Us Weekly magazine Tuesday that she's engaged.

"It happened a few days ago," Walsh said of her engagement to Alex Young, a studio executive. "I'm on cloud nine."

People magazine reported Wednesday that Young proposed in San Francisco.
