Fans of Katie Cassidy have been "Canary crying" with joy because the actress has just announced her engagement to boyfriend Matthew Rodgers. Cassidy took to Instagram to share a touching image of herself and Rodgers, expressing her happiness in the accompanying caption, in which she thanked him for a "magical" evening. Check out the post below:

It didn't take long for the post to circulate, especially among the actress's 2 million followers — and she was congratulated by fans and friends, including her former Arrow co-star Colton Haynes. Furthermore, Rodgers shared a cute image of the pair's hands clasped, revealing Cassidy's stunning diamond-shaped engagement ring:

Cassidy is best known for her role on in which she portrayed Laurel Lance/Black Canary for the show's first four seasons, until the character was killed off — a decision which the show received a lot of backlash over. After a string of guest appearances, she will return as a series regular for Season 6, portraying Black Siren — the villainous Earth-2 doppelgänger of her original character. She reprised both roles on and is also known for her breakout role as Ruby in 's third season.

As a longtime fan of Katie Cassidy, I am thrilled for her and wish the couple many happy years together. Congratulations to them both!
