Comedian Steve Harvey may now be getting another son!

The famous daytime talk show host’s youngest daughter, Lori Harvey, is officially engaged to Dutch professional soccer player, Memphis Depay and we are so happy for the two of them.

Steve announced the news just this past Monday morning!

“Marjorie and I are proud to announce the engagement of our youngest daughter Lori to Memphis Depay,” Steve, 60, wrote on Twitter, and added, “this young man is a good one! Congrats!”

Depay, 23, also took to his Twitter account to share the exciting news with his followers.

“SHE SAID YESSS!!!!!” he first tweeted alongside a picture from the proposal. Memphis later posted the monumental dates in their lives.

And to share her excitement with her fans, the bride-to-be posted a few images of her own, similar to the ones from Depay’s account.

“WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!” she posted on Saturday.

After the two of them revealed their engagement to the world, Lori addressed the onlookers who inquired about whether she was pregnant or not, being that she is getting married at such a young age.

“No I’m not pregnant and won’t be for a while,” she posted.

“I’m 20 and my fiancé is 23 for everyone asking….yes we are young, but when it’s right why wait,” she later tweeted, and followed it with, “Young and in love @Memphis.”

Just back in May of last year, Harvey and his wife, Marjorie, opened up about their blended family after the two of them reconnected after dating and then drifting apart for several years.

“I said, ‘Look, you don’t like it? Deal with it. I don’t need y’all’s permission,’ ” Steve, who wed Marjorie in 2007, told PEOPLE.

However, Marjorie, 52, took a different approach.

“When you’re dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken,” she said. “We knew this was right. But I just told them, ‘Everyone is included. Everyone has access to their parents. Whatever you didn’t have before, don’t let that interfere with what you can have now.’ ”

Her words were what resonated with their children — Steve’s twin daughters Brandi and Karli, now 34 and from his marriage to first wife Marcia, and sons Broderick, 26, and Wynton, 19, from his second marriage to Mary Shackelford, plus Marjorie’s children Morgan, 30, Jason, 25, and Lori, 20, from her previous marriage.

“Now,” said Marjorie, “we’re Mom and Dad to everybody.”

Wow! So, what are your thoughts on this news? Do you think the two of them will have a happy and fruitful marriage? We sure are hoping so.
