The actress shares he set up a small scavenger hunt around the house that led to a letter hidden behind her infant daughter, Ella-Loren. "[It was] a letter of just beauty," she says.
And according to the actress, the mystery man had been planning to propose for quite some time, joking that the ring has "been burning a hole in his pocket for a while."
