Ana Ortiz, who plays America Ferrera’s fiery sister Hilda Suarez on Ugly Betty, will marry musician Noah Lebenzon in June in her native Puerto Rico, she tells PEOPLE.
“I’m really thrilled and my cheeks are hurting from smiling,” she says. “He’s a California boy so it’s a nice balance for my crazy New Yorker.”
Ortiz, 36, says the 36-year-old Lebenzon proposed in August on one knee after calling her father to ask for his blessing.
“That was adorable and now my father is completely in love with him too,” she says.
Among the confirmed guests for the June 9 wedding is Ugly Betty star Ferrera.
