She wanted him to be him.

Actress Meg Ryan announced on Instagram Thursday that she and musician John Mellencamp were getting married.

"OCCUPY!" she wrote on Instagram with a hand-drawn portrait of both of them.

The two have been dating since 2010. Mellencamp, 67, allegedly dived from supermodel Christie Brinkley from 2015 to 2016, but shortly thereafter reunited with Ryan. He has already been married three times and has five children.

Ryan, 56, was married to actor Dennis Quaid from 1991 to 2001. She has a child and in 2006 adopted her daughter, Daisy True, from China.

A wedding date and details have not been announced.
