"I'm so happy. It was so beautiful, romantic and I was completely surprised. I'm just really happy and enjoying this time," she told OK! Magazine.

Smart and Oosterhouse met in November at a green charity event and hit it off right away. "They are perfect for each other," an insider tells Us Magazine. "Here are two wholesome, kind, sweet Midwestern types. Neither has sold out and gone Hollywood."

How did he propose? Smart isn't sharing many details, saying, "That's personal, but it was very touching, very loving."

The actress, who was previously engaged to actor Branden Williams, says she would "love to have children. That's definitely something I want."

Check out a close-up of her engagement ring. What do you think of her new sparkler?
