Grammy winning rocker Melissa Etheridge and "Nurse Jackie" co-creator Linda Wallem are engaged.

Etheridge made the news public via Twitter. Over two tweets, Etheridge revealed: "I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties and getting fully, completely and legally married this year to my true love of over three years, Linda Wallem."

Etheridge's announcement follows the U.S. Supreme Court's historic ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and dismissal of a ruling on Proposition 8 in California -- where Etheridge and Wallem reside.

Etheridge also celebrated that news with the tweet: "Lets hear it for the general progress of the human mind. With a beautiful sweep of sweet justice's blind hand we move forward."
