New York — Gina Rodriguez credits Jane the Virgin with many things: Changing her career (she won a Golden Globe for her work on The CW series in 2015), giving her a platform for activism and humanitarian work, and leading her to the love of her life.

The actress confirmed her engagement to Joe LoCicero, who she met when he guest-starred in an episode of the show in 2016.

"I never was the girl that dreamt about my wedding," said Gina, 34, in an interview on Tuesday.

"I did always pray that I would meet a really cool partner, whether it was going to be male or female, that I was going to have somebody that was going to uplift me and support me and want me to shine and not want to take away from that but want to shine as well in their own right and I found it in Joe, and I found it on the set of Jane."
