Jacobson's longtime friend and costar D'Arcy Carden chimed in as well. "It's out. It's great. We're so happy. We love [Jodi]."
For her part, Balfour is a South African actor who has starred in "For All Mankind," "Supernatural," and "The Crown," among other projects. Next up, she's set to appear in season three of "Ted Lasso." While she hasn't posted about the engagement news on her Instagram yet, the 35-year-old actor did follow her girlfriend's lead by sharing a tribute to Jacobson on their first anniversary. "365 days of the best surprise of my life," she wrote on Instagram alongside of a photo of her and Jacobson sharing a kiss.
Now it seems these two will have plenty more anniversaries to celebrate together in their future.
