Ana Ortiz, Ugly Betty Star, Announces Engagement

by at . Comments

Ana Ortiz, who plays fiery sister Hilda Suarez on Ugly Betty, will marry musician Noah Lebenzon in June in her native Puerto Rico.

"I'm really thrilled and my cheeks are hurting from smiling," she says. "He's a California boy so it's a nice balance for my crazy New Yorker."

Ortiz, 36, says the 36-year-old Lebenzon proposed in August on one knee after calling her father to ask for his blessing, according to People.

"That was adorable and now my father is completely in love with him too," says the Ugly Betty star, who is not actually ugly at all - amazing!

Among the confirmed guests for the June 9 wedding is Ugly Betty heroine America Ferrera. She also got engaged recently, and we're assuming her fiance, Ryan Piers Williams, will also be invited to the affair.

It's been a busy year off the set for the Ugly Betty team.

In addition to Ferrera's awesome news, executive producer Salma Hayek announced her engagement (and pregnancy) to François-Henri Pinault last week, while co-star Ashley Jensen eloped in January.

Congratulations to Ortiz from all of us at the Gossip. Among the other celebrity weddings we have to look forward to are Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, along with Prince William and Kate Middleton!

Okay, so the latter is mostly wishful thinking. We just love them.
