America Ferrera is adding bride to her list of credits.

A spokeswoman for the 26-year-old actress and producer says the "Ugly Betty" star is engaged to marry her longtime boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams.

Publicist Carrie Byalick did not provide further details.

Ferrera won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her portrayal of Betty Suarez on ABC's "Ugly Betty," which wrapped last year after four seasons.

She and Williams met at the University of Southern California when he cast her in his student film.

According to the movie database, Williams also wrote and directed the film "The Dry Land," due for release later this summer and starring Ferrera.
