It’s a diamond ring for 30 Rock star Katrina Bowden.
Us Weekly reported the blonde beauty, best known for playing apathetic assistant Cerie on sitcom starring Tina Fey, got engaged a day before the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Bowden was flaunting her engagement ring, which she received when her fiancé, punk rock musician Ben Jorgensen, popped the question at their suite in the Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday.
"We talked about it, so it wasn't out of nowhere, but I was so surprised," she said. "That's why I forgot to say 'yes' at first."
But according to People, the 23-year-old did give her fiancé a hug.
"He proposed and showed me the ring. I was so shocked that I just said, 'Oh my God!' and I hugged him and he said to me, 'So is that a yes?'" she recalled. "He picked it out all by himself."
The actress, whose NBC show was nominated for an outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series SAG award, added that she couldn’t have thought of a better proposal.
"It was just the two of us all day, and I was like, 'What better time than this?'"
Bowden and Jorgensen were friends growing up in New Jersey and had been dating for almost two years.
