One of Capitol Hill's rising stars is officially tying the knot.

On Thursday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) confirmed that she is getting married in her home state of Hawaii. The wedding is planned for April and no other details were released.

The 33-year-old congresswoman did not divulge the name of her fiancé, but according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, he is a videographer.

Gabbard has been dubbed the "Hawaiian Heartbreaker" and ranked sixth on The Hill's 50 Most Beautiful list.

She was married once before but divorced shortly after she returned from a deployment to Iraq as a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard. She told the Honolulu Civil Beat that the divorce was a result of "the stresses war places on military spouses and families," adding that her deployments led to her changed views on abortion and same-sex marriage.

After easily winning reelection in November, Gabbard was officially sworn in to the 114th Congress this week.
