Is this girl on a roll or what?

After getting dumped by Bachelor Jason Mesnick, Melissa Rycroft has had one lucky day after another.

She tore up on the floor on last season's Dancing With the Stars, just snagged a gig with Good Morning America, and now has gotten her new boyfriend to put a ring on her finger!

According to Star, Melissa and Tye Strickland are engaged -- and she's thrilled.

"She has long wanted to be married -- she's a Southern girl at heart and can't wait to be a wife," a source tells the mag. "Tye was so supportive during her whole rise to fame and during her grueling rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars that she is certain he will be a good husband. He is nurturing toward her and that's what she needs."

Still, though, other sources say Melissa was afraid that the news would get out and people would think she was rushing into something too soon after getting her heart broken by Jason.

"Melissa doesn't want everyone to know yet that she is engaged to Tye because she doesn't want to be judged for getting engaged again so soon after her last fiancé, Jason, broke it off with her last March," the insider told Star.

"The last thing she wants is people saying that she must be desperate. She's been dating Tye for only a few months but she's known him for years, so she thinks he's solid."

Do you think it's too soon for Melissa to be planning another wedding?
