Leave it to Ugly Betty to tell it like it is—even when what it is is one of the biggest moments of her life.
Interviewed on Milling About at the Edinburgh Film Festival in Scotland, America Ferrera dishes about her engagement to her longtime beau, writer-director Ryan Piers Williams.
“It’s really happy and good news, so it’s nice,” she tells host Robin Milling.
“I’ve been getting a lot of emails from my friends who didn’t know —but they do know now, so that’s good.
“Everybody kind of found out at the same time from reading about it,” the star of ABC’s recently-wrapped Ugly Betty and the hit Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants flicks continues.
“We’d been together five years, so it was more of a conversation!” she adds of the proposal from Ryan, which came complete with a diamond ring.
America also lets us in on what she and Ryan have been up to there in Scotland.
“Yesterday we went on a bike ride from Edinburgh to Musselburgh, and we had ice cream at [local café] S. Luca, which was delicious,” she says—before quipping:
“I think I pulled a muscle because my leg hurts now. I pulled a muscle in Musselburgh!”
