Jodie Sweetin, who rose to fame as a child star on the 1990s sitcom Full House, received an engagement ring at her birthday party on Tuesday, Jan. 18. The actress turned 29 on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

Sweetin’s fiancé, Morty Coyle, 42, proposed to her at her birthday party in Los Angeles in front of all the guests, according to People magazine.

“It was a complete surprise,” Sweetin told People. “We are just thrilled, and I am in shock still!

"I was just glad that everybody was there. People videotaped it. It was great.”

Her engagement ring has an oval 2.5-carat sapphire, surrounded by 18 diamonds that form a snowflake shape.

While Sweetin was kept out of the loop, her friends knew about the surprise plan and adorned the party venue with diamonds and other decorations, Sweetin told People later.

The couple has yet to decide on a wedding date and said that they are in “no hurry” to marry, according to Daily News.

Sweetin has also appeared on shows including Party of Five, Yes, Dear, and Redefining Love.
