Damon's engagement joy
13:30 13 September 2005
Matt Damon has got engaged to girlfriend Luciana Barroso.
The heartthrob actor proposed to the pretty interior designer "shortly before Labour Day", his spokesperson has confirmed.
The couple, who have been dating for two years, have yet to set a wedding date.
By marrying Luciana, Matt will become stepfather to her six-year-old daughter, Alexa, from a former relationship.
The 'Good Will Hunting' star - who has previously dated Hollywood beauties Eva Mendes, Minnie Driver and Penelope Cruz - recently confessed he was desperate to become a dad.
He admitted: "I am definitely a little broody. I want kids. I don't know when, but I do know it's something I want."
As well as spending time with Luciana and her daughter in Europe while he filmed 'Ocean's Twelve', Matt says looking after his nephews has also triggered his paternal instinct.
He said: "I have nephews and seeing them grow older is fun."
Matt has been engaged once before - to best friend Ben Affleck's former personal assistant, Odessa Whitmire.
The pair, who romanced for three years, became close when Ben went into rehab in 2001 to battle alcohol addiction, but they split two years later.
