Talk about passion!
Actress Natalie Zea and her longtime boyfriend Travis Schuldt are engaged.
After 10 years together, the couple – who met when they costarred on the soap opera Passions – are making it official after a proposal in Kauai, Hawaii.
“He wanted to make sure he gave the car a thorough test drive before he bought it,” Zea, 38, tells PEOPLE.
Aside from his role on Passions, Schuldt, 38, also starred on Scrubs, while Zea, who played Winona on Justified, currently stars as Claire Matthews on The Following.
