Jane the Virgin is getting married. CW actress Gina Rodriguez confirmed last month that she’s engaged to Joe LoCicero, and her fiancé isn’t the only entity to attract all the attention after the proposal.
Rodriguez debuted her engagement ring at the red carpet premiere of her movie Smallfoot, where she was supported by her future husband. “Life is good,” Rodriguez told Entertainment Tonight. “He did great [with the ring]. He did great. Because it’s my style, right? That’s all that matters.”
The piece is an art deco-inspired ring featuring one large diamond set on an intricate diamond plate. “He knows what I like,” she added. “And he knows my heart and he rocks.”
Along with LoCicero, Rodriguez was supported by other loved ones including her Jane the Virgin colleagues Justin Baldoni, Brett Dier and Jaime Camil.
The couple got engaged during a romantic trip to Tulum, Mexico, where Rodriguez welcomed her 34th birthday with a rather large bauble adorning her ring finger. “34,” she expressed on Instagram alongside a Frida Kahlo quote. “‘They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.’”

Rodriguez and LoCicero first met on the set of Jane the Virgin in 2016, though their relationship didn’t turn romantic until a subsequent run-in at the gym. “It was serendipitous,” she later told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest of their encounter.
For now, they are enjoying their engagement before fully committing to wedding planning. “Oh, I haven’t even thought that far,” she said. “I can’t even imagine planning anything. Also, I need to finish Jane. I’m like, whew. But it’s good. It’s good.”
