‘Superman’ Star Henry Cavill Engaged! (Cue The Tears!)

While this is great news for the couple, we admit we’re a bit heartbroken. It seems that Superman has put a ring on his real-life Lois Lane. Ladies, Henry Cavill is officially off the market.

According to reports, Henry popped the question to his lady love, Ellen Whitaker (who is on the British show jumping team and is currently training for the 2012 Olympics), and like any gentleman, he asked her dad for his blessing before proposing.

“I couldn’t believe it when he asked me to marry him,” she told the Belfast Telegraph (who were also the first to report the news). “I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy.”

It’s shaping up to be a big year for the 27-year-old hottie. He’s set to star in the thriller “The Cold Day of Light” and he’s going to get all Greek warrior on us in “Immortals.” Oh, yeah, he’s also going to start shooting “Man of Steal” (you know, the movie where he plays Superman), which opens next year. Okay, so we can’t have him in real life, but at least we can gawk at him on the big screen!

Now, console yourself by perusing our gallery of hot Henry images. You know you want to.
