India-dwellers Katy Perry and Russell Brand weren't the only couple getting engaged in exotic climes over the New Year's holiday: Eva LaRue of "CSI: Miami" accepted her boyfriend's proposal during a vacation in Bora Bora!

"I just got engaged!" LaRue, 43, told Hollyscoop Tuesday at the Palm Springs Film Festival. Flashing her ring, (a "4-carat cushion cut diamond center stone with small pink side stones and a diamond-studded band), the TV star said that she and boyfriend Joe Cappuccio "got engaged in Bora Bora last week."

And the setting for Cappucio's proposal sounds pretty romantic: "It was a table for two on the beach by the water, we had a private dinner ... I knew he was going to do it, I just didn't know when he was going to do it," she said.

How'd they profess their love the morning after?

"The next day we went swimming with sharks," LaRue explained.

The happy couple has put their special day on the fast track, she said.

"We're already planning, probably in the next six months," she admitted.

By all accounts, the pair seem to be globetrotters: after their Bora Bora proposal, she said their wedding is going to be a "destination wedding for sure," and they've got their eye on Thailand.
