Kate Walsh is engaged to marry Australian farmer Andrew Nixon.
The Grey’s Anatomy star “revealed” her engagement during an Instagram Live with former Private Practice co-star Amy Brenneman on Wednesday night.
Kate was talking to Amy from her home in Perth, Australia, when she was distracted by Andrew walking through the house.
“This is the jungle cat, he’s my fiancé, he’s about to cross over,” she said, before telling Andrew, “Hey baby, I’m just doing an Instagram Live with Amy B. “
Amy then said, “Hey Andrew, she’s 100 per cent revealed your engagement,” as Kate swung her camera around to reveal Andrew, who waved at the camera.
“It’s true, I just announced our engagement,” the Emily in Paris star confirmed to Andrew, to whom he replied, “Awwww!”
After Kate flipped the camera to continue their conversation, her partner leaned in and kissed her.
She later referenced her happy news on her Instagram Stories by sharing a photo of two martinis at a bar with the caption, “Celebrating with @andynix1!!”
The 54-year-old has been in a relationship with Andrew since early 2020 and she moved to Australia during the Covid-19 pandemic.
This will be Kate’s second time down the aisle. She was previously married to studio head Alex Young between September 2007 and December 2008, but their divorce was not finalized until 2010.
