Linda Cardellini Engaged: 'Freaks And Geeks' Actress And Boyfriend Steven Rodriguez Set To Wed (VIDEO)

Congratulations go out to actress Linda Cardellini, who revealed on "The View" this morning that she and boyfriend Steven Rodriguez, who is also the father of her child, got engaged last night.

Cardellini, 37, known for her roles as Lindsay Weir on "Freaks and Geeks," Sam Taggart on "E.R." and most recently Sylvia on "Mad Men," told "The View" panel (and Jerry O'Connell) of her joyous night.

"Were you surprised or did you sense it coming?" asked Elisabeth Hasselbeck after Cardellini said she and Rodriguez have known each other since they were 10 years old.

"I was surprised that it was happening at that moment, yes," said Cardellini. "We were actually with some of the people I love most: my sister, and my cousins and one of my best friends Maura [Tierney]. We were sitting there after watching 'Lucky Guy,' the play ... and we were all having dinner -- he brought my baby out -- and we were sitting, and he started getting choked up and then he got on his knee. It was very beautiful."

Before Rodriguez, Cardellini famously dated Jason Segel for a few years, after the two were on "Freaks and Geeks" together.
