LOS ANGELES, May 19 (UPI) -- Two-time Oscar nominee Samantha Morton and filmmaker Harry Holm got engaged in Paris, People magazine reported Friday.

Holm, 25, proposed to Morton, 29, on her birthday last Saturday.

"We're over the moon," Morton said in a statement. "We're very much in love and looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together."

Holm -- the son of actor Ian Holm -- directed Morton about a year ago in a music video for The Victims.

The couple is planning a September wedding.

Morton received Oscar nods for "Sweet & Lowdown" in 1999 and "In America" in 2002. The mother of a 6-year-old daughter is getting ready to portray Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film, "Mr. Lonely."
