America Ferrara is engaged!

A rep for the former “Ugly Betty” star confirmed to Access Hollywood that the actress is now engaged to marry her longtime boyfriend, filmmaker Ryan Piers Williams.

America and Ryan have been dating for several years, and were previously rumored to be engaged in May 2008. However, her rep shot down the rumors at the time.

The couple met prior to America’s stint as the lovable-but-quirky fashion assistant Betty Suarez on the ABC show, which ended its run after four seasons, back in April.

Ryan previously cast America in a film he was doing while he was a student at the University of Southern California.

In related America news, the actress was at the Edinburgh Film Festival on Wednesday, promoting her upcoming film “The Dry Land.”
