THE SOPRANOS star James Gandolfini has got engaged to girlfriend LORA SOMOZA.

The actor was rumoured to have proposed to Somoza - who he met on the set of movie The Mexican in 2000 - after being spotted shopping for a ring in New York just before Christmas (DEC03).

Now Gandolfini has confirmed the news to website PAGE SIX.

The pair have yet to set a date, but the 42-year-old star is free to tie the knot again after divorcing wife of three years MARCY WUSARSKI in December 2002.
