NCIS star Wilmer Valderrama is engaged to model Amanda Pacheco. Valderrama took to his Instagram page to announce the big news on New Year’s Day.
Since popping the question to Pacheco on a beach in San Diego, Valderrama has been receiving notes on congratulations on social media. That includes messages from other members of the NCIS cast, as well as many notable celebrities.
The couple has been in the news as an item since about April 2019, with both of them sharing photos to their social media accounts along the way. That includes Pacheco sharing a close-up photo of the (gigantic) ring to her personal account.
An image of that magnificent ring can still be seen on her account.

Wilmer Valderrama joined the NCIS cast on the first episode of Season 14, starting out as a deep-cover agent named Nicolas Torres. Once Gibbs (Mark Harmon) saw what he could do, Torres was invited to join the team.
The addition of Valderrama to the cast was a good one, even though he had some big shoes to fill after Michael Weatherly — who had played Anthony DiNozzo for years — left the show to go work on Bull.
