Maria Bello & Boyfriend Engaged

Actress Maria Bello and her boyfriend, Bryn Mooser, are engaged.

The couple first announced their engagement in the “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon” actress’ hometown newspaper, The Norristown Times Herald, in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Their announcement reportedly said they “fell in love over a sheer passion of politics, Africa and cryptozoology,” according to People.

A rep for the actress confirmed the news to the mag.

Maria, 41, says her 28-year-old musician boyfriend has changed her view on marriage.

“I was always anti-marriage,” she told Page Six Magazine Sunday. “I didn’t understand monogamy. I couldn’t figure out how that could last. And then I met Bryn and I started to understand the beauty of constancy and history and change and going on the roller coaster with someone — of having a partner in life.”

The couple has reportedly not set a date to walk down the aisle.

Maria replaces Rachel Weisz, as Evelyn O’Connell, in the third installment of “The Mummy” franchise, opening in theaters Friday.
