“Christmas wishes will come true,” Ray wrote. “I asked the love of my life Jacy to marry me, and thank God she said yes! @jacynittolo @karsen_liotta #merrychristmas”

Ray Liotta Engaged Jacy Nittolo Following Spirit Awards

The Shades of Blue actor hasn’t been shy about his love for Jacy. Last month, he posted a photo of the two of them at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in February and already referred to her as his fiance.
“FBF, February 8th earlier this year at the Spirit Awards accepting the Robert Altman Award with the cast of Marriage Story. Here I am backstage with my beautiful fiancé Jacy Nittolo after the award ceremony,” the star wrote alongside the picture, his first since 2017.
Like her fiancé, Jacy does not share much on social media; however, she has posted a couple of photos of herself with Liotta this past year. It appears that the feeling is mutual, as earlier this month, Nittolo wished Liotta a happy birthday on Instagram and called the actor the love of her life.
“Happy Birthday to the love of my life ❤️,” Nittolo wrote alongside a black and white picture of the two of them earlier after she posted a photograph similar to Ray’s from February of the two at the 2020 Spirit Awards. Jacy captioned the picture with a simple red heart emoji.
