Congratulations are in order for The Young and the Restless star Julia Pace Mitchell.  According to Essence.com, her boyfriend Stephen L. Hightower proposed to Mitchell over the recent holiday weekend, after accidently texting a picture of the ring to her instead of his sister.

“Stephen came running in the door after texting me a photo of the ring,” Julia says. “He dropped to one knee and said, ‘I was trying to find the perfect moment but every moment is perfect with you. Will you marry me, please?’ I was overwhelmed with joy, I immediately yelled ‘YES!’ and jumped around thanking God! I had a wave of joy, and then came tears and a sense of calm and comfort.
