Katrina Bowden turned heads on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards with a very special accessory – an engagement ring.
Her fiancé, Ben Jorgensen, popped the question Saturday night at a suite in the Four Seasons Hotel.
“I was so shocked,” the 30 Rock star, 23, told E! host Giuliana Rancic Sunday night outside L.A.’s Shrine Exposition Center. “And I said, ‘Oh my God,’ and I hugged him.”
His response? “He said, ‘Is that a yes?’ ”
Bowden, who was on hand to support her show, which is up for honors for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series, says her punk rocker fiancé picked out the bling all by himself.
“We talked about it, so it wasn’t out of nowhere, but I was so surprised,” she says. “That’s why I forgot to say ‘yes’ at first.”
