David Hasselhoff is Engaged to Hayley Roberts

David Hasselhoff is off the market!

The former "Baywatch" star proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Hayley Roberts, 36, after nearly five years of dating.

The Hoff confirmed the happy news on his Twitter account on Tuesday, May 3.

The 63-year-old star reportedly popped the question during a romantic beachside picnic in Malibu.

"We were both in tears ... I genuinely had no idea he was going to do that," Roberts told Hello! of the romantic gesture. "I'm still overwhelmed."

And the 27-year age gap didn't bother either Roberts or Hasselhoff.

"I had a saying, 'You don't get married because you want to live with someone, you get married because you can't live without them,' " he said. "I felt that way. I knew that I was really unhappy without her. I waited to propose because I thought I was too old for her."

But Roberts said their age gap never bothered her. "I don't worry about it. I don't want to miss out on being with someone I love because of what might happen down the line."

Hasselhoff first met model Roberts in 2011 when he was signing an autograph for her. Not long after the duo totally hit it off and started dating.

This is the Hoff's third trip down the aisle. He was previously married to singer Catherine Hickland from 1984-1989. He later tied the knot with Pamela Bach in 1989, but they separated after seven years of marriage.

Bach and Hasselhoff have two daughters together: Hayley, 23, and Taylor, 25.

Congrats to the happy couple!
