Brad Garrett is engaged

'Everybody Loves Raymond' star Brad Garrett has got engaged.

The 56-year-old actor - best known for playing Robert Barone in the series from 1996 until 2005 - recently popped the question to his girlfriend Isabella Quella, who is 24 years younger than him, his representative confirmed to 'Entertainment Tonight'.

The couple have reportedly been quietly dating since 2008 and have now decided to their relationship to the next level by getting hitched because they "click on every level."

Brad said: "We're old souls. That's why we get along so well. We click at every level."

Although they're very much in love, Brad appreciates that their age gap is something that often raises eyebrows but he doesn't mind because his priority is the blonde star.

He said recently: "I'm with someone now who's a little young. We had an Amber Alert [given a warning] the other night when we went to the movies.

"[Don] Rickles walks up to the table and he looks at her and he looks at me and he goes, '12? 13 maybe, Brad?' And then he looks at her and goes, 'You being kidnapped, honey? Blink if you're being kidnapped.' I immediately put her in a timeout."

This will be the second time Brad walks down the aisle as he was previously married to Jill Diven, whom he has two children Maxwell and Hope, in 1999 but their relationship came crashing down six years later and they went on to divorce in 2006.

Shortly after their divorce, Brad appeared on his own reality TV show 'Dating Brad Garrett' as he attempted to find love with women he met on the internet.
