Charlene McKenna has announced her engagement to her boyfriend, fellow actor Adam Rothenberg.

The Monaghan-born, New York-based actress revealed the news on Instagram, posting a photo of herself sporting a diamond ring along with her new fiancé.

Tagging the photo from Manhattan, New York, the Irish actress wrote along with the selfie, "Sure G'wan..." along with a ring emoji.

Rothenberg, 43, is an American actor, best known for his role as Captain Homer Jackson in the BBC One drama Ripper Street, in which McKenna also starred as Rose Erskine.

35-year-old McKenna previously joked that their romance was a "total cliche" as it blossomed on set.

She told The Independent: "We fell in love working together. Adam is just one of the smartest and most talented people I have ever met, and he's an amazing anchor for this acting world we're in.

"He's older than me so that's very grounding because he has no interest in the hype, as he has kind of been there and done that. I often think he would make a wonderful psychologist, as we have really good in-depth chats and he's a very good person."

It was recently revealed that McKenna, Brian Gleeson and Emmet J Scanlan are set to star opposite Cillian Murphy and the rest of the Irish contingent in the eagerly-awaited fifth season of crime-drama Peaky Blinders.
