Sorry ladies; Muse guitarist and frontman Matt Bellamy is off the market. Bellamy and American model Elle Evans, his girlfriend of the past two years, got engaged earlier this month while vacationing in Fiji.

This is the third time Bellamy has been engaged; he was previously set to wed Gaia Polloni, a psychologist, until they split up in 2009, then proposed to actress Kate Hudson in 2011, with whom Bellamy had a son that year but the couple called off the engagement in 2014. They remain friends, however, and Bellamy and Evans spent Christmas last year in Aspen with Hudson and their son.

Evans shared the engagement news by posting three photos on Instagram of the couple, with the note: “Was going to surprise everyone on Christmas but just can’t wait any longer. We are so happy to announce to the world that we are engaged! Just a few days after my birthday, on the most romantic holiday of our lives, the man of my dreams asked me to marry him. After tears of joy, gasps of shock, and a split second of disbelief, of course — I said YES! I can’t imagine our lives apart. What I can imagine is a bright future full of love & light, family & friends, moments that turn into cherished memories, and a lifetime of pure bliss.”

Muse, meanwhile, is currently working on a new album and has one show — May 6 at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Concord, N.C. — on the books for 2018 with more expected to be announced.
