'Jane the Virgin' star Gina Rodriguez confirms she's engaged

The week-old rumor is officially true: Gina Rodriguez is engaged to Joe LoCicero.

“I am [engaged]!” Rodriguez told People Magazine. “He’s the best… We’ve been engaged for like a month – I’ve kept it a secret for a while.”

According to the outlet, the couple met in 2016 when LoCicero guest starred as a stripper on CW’s hit rom-com drama, "Jane the Virgin,"  and began dating soon after. 

Last week, rumors started swirling that Rodriguez and LoCicero, 31, were engaged after fans noticed a diamond sparkler on the actress' ring finger in an Instagram post for her 34th birthday. 

Throwback. Stuntin with my best friend. 😍

When Rodriguez features her beau on her social media posts, their love is clear as day. However, Rodriguez wanted to keep their engagement low-key in contrast to her highly public life as a Hollywood star.

“I don’t even really want to say it’s happening,” Rodriguez explained to People. “I just want to live! I think there’s a huge blessing in the fact that people care. That’s a beautiful thing, so that feels really good.

She continued: "But another part of me wants to keep a little something that’s just mine, ‘cause there’s not too many things I have like that anymore.”
