Max Brown engaged

British actor Max Brown is preparing to walk down the aisle after proposing to girlfriend Annabelle Horsey.

The Tudors star, 31, is planning to exchange vows with former model Horsey in a romantic ceremony in their native England.

He tells Britain's The Sunday Telegraph, "We are marrying in Dorset. It's going to be such a beautiful wedding."

And while Horsey insists she is "looking forward to a different name", Brown admits the couple has no plans to hyphenate their family names, quipping, "We can't go double-barreled, or it will be Brown Horsey."

Brown first married actress Pollyanna Rose in December, 2005, but they divorced in 2008.
