Cook posted about the engagement on Instagram on Oct. 29.

"SHE SAID YES! ??❤️," he wrote. "I love her and that’s the beginning and the end of everything.”

Cook was formerly married to supermodel Christie Brinkley. The two wed in 1996 but they went their separate ways in 2008, after Brinkley accused Cook of cheating on him with an 18-year-old.

The former couple have a daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, a model who has appeared on Dancing with the Stars. At 21, she is the same age as Jancou.
