Comedian Kevin Hart is engaged to his longtime girlfriend Eniko Parrish.

The “Ride Along” star popped the question at Parrish’s 30th birthday celebration on Sunday, and in a video posted on Instagram.com by a friend, the comedian calls his decision “perfect” during a speech dedicated to his wife-to-be.

He says, “On this perfect day, I choose to make the most perfect decision”, before getting down on one knee to present Parrish with a diamond ring.

Hart, 35, took to Twitter.com on Monday to confirm the exciting news, posting a photo of his fiancee showing off her bauble while she hugs him from behind.

He added the caption, “She said YEEEEESSSSS…”

This will be Hart’s second marriage – he was previously married to comedienne Torrei Hart for seven years until their split in 2010. They have joint custody of their two children, daughter Heaven and son Hendrix.

Torrei, who stars on U.S. reality TV series “Atlanta Exes,” previously claimed the funnyman’s affair with Parrish ultimately led to the demise of their marriage, but Kevin fired back and insisted his girlfriend had “nothing to do with my past marriage problems in any way shape or form.”
