George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis is engaged.

The Italian model/actress is ready to tie the knot with orthopaedic surgeon Brian Perri, her representative confirmed to Usmagazine.com.

The 35 year old sparked speculation of an engagement earlier this week (beg18Aug14) when she was spotted wearing a large diamond ring on her left hand.

The couple is reportedly planning to wed on 14 September (14) in Sardinia, Italy. Her ex-boyfriend Clooney is also expected to marry in Italy during that month.

Canalis split from the actor in 2011 after an 18-month relationship.
