Las Vegas beauty Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, General Hospital) enjoyed a very special New Year's Eve: Boyfriend Ben Younger proposed marriage, and reportedly, Marcil accepted.  The duo have been a couple for quite some time and when Soapdom spoke with Marcil earlier last year it was obvious that Younger had stolen her heart.  "Ben and I are buying an apartment in the city (this summer)," she excitedly informed Soapdom.  "He is honestly the most patient person you will ever meet and he is a wonderful writer/director... not to mention a full-blown New Yorker which I adore because I've always felt like New York was home to me."  Marcil was previously engaged to former costars Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, GH) and Brian A. Green (David, Beverly Hills, 90210) with whom she shares a son Kassius, nearly 5-years-old.  Congratulations to Marcil and Younger. Contributed by LDB
