Smart shared the exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday, writing, “SURPRISE!! Thanks @Deadline #ABC #LionsGate.”

The triple threat opened up to ET last week at the premiere of his latest film, The Perfect Match, revealing that his relationship with longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, is all about mutual support.
