'Superman' Henry Cavill Engaged to Ellen Whitaker

The "S" on his chest definitely doesn't stand for single!

"Man of Steel" star Henry Cavill reportedly proposed to girlfriend Ellen Whitaker recently while on vacation in California.

The bride-to-be, who is currently training for the 2012 Olympics with the British show jumping team, was taken by surprise when he popped the question.

Whitaker told the Belfast Telegraph of the proposal, "I couldn't believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy."

Sources say the 27-year-old hunk is also a gentleman, getting permission from Whitaker's father before putting a ring on it.

In addition to playing Superman, Cavill will also star in the upcoming thriller "The Cold Day of Light" and as a Greek warrior in "Immortals."

Congrats to the two lovebirds on their engagement!
