Is the ink dry on those divorce papers?

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is a man on a mission to marry Catriona McGinn. Word is breaking that the actor has proposed to the advertising executive, and she couldn't have said yes soon enough!

Though Mark-Paul Gosselaar's divorce from Lisa Ann Russell, his wife of 14 years, only became finalized in May, he's already to take a second swing at happily ever after.

A rep for the actor has confirmed the happy news to SheKnows, though no further details of the wedding plans have yet been made available.

The 36-year-old wooed girlfriend Catriona McGinn into saying 'yes' with a five-carat Neil Lane engagement ring. The jeweler tells People, "He couldn't wait to propose. He was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams."

Speaking of his lady love, Mark-Paul Gosselaar said this past weekend, "She's absolutely gorgeous, she's stunning, and she takes my breath away. Catriona's great with my kids. My kids absolutely adore her."

Those kids, pictured here with their dad and future stepmom during a visit to Disney On Ice last winter, are 7-year-old son Michael and 5-year-old daughter Ava from his previous marriage.

Congratulations to Catriona McGinn and Mark-Paul Gosselaar on the engagement!
