Gwyneth Paltrow and her beau of nearly four years Brad Falchuk are preparing to say "I do" following their engagment, and Paltrow's got the gigantic ring to prove it.

Paltrow and Falchuk's engagement was confirmed back in November, but it's only recently that they've started speaking out about it.
"We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives, when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship," they said in a statement in January.
The happy couple initially met on the set of Glee, which Falchuk executive produced and co-created and Paltrow guest-starred on as substitute teacher Holly Holliday.
