America-ferrera-engaged The star of "Ugly Betty" is poised to be a beautiful bride -- actress America Ferrera is engaged to longtime beau Ryan Piers Williams.

After the actress sported a diamond ring on that all-important finger during the Scottish premiere of "The Illusionist" on Wednesday, Ferrera's publicist confirmed the engagement to People magazine. 

Ferrera and Williams, a writer-director, have been dating for more than three years. They first met at the University of Southern California when Williams cast Ferrera in one of his student films, People says.

The "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star also appeared in Williams' "The Dry Land," a 2010 Sundance Film Festival entry.
