Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin received a surprise gift for her 29th birthday from her boyfriend Morty Coyle – an enagement ring!
Sweetin, whose birthday is today, January 19, had a birthday party last night at Kibitz Room in Los Angeles. Coyle proposed to Sweetin in front of all their party guests and she said yes.
“It was a complete surprise,” Sweetin told People. “We are just thrilled and I am in shock still!”
“I was glad that everybody was there,” she says. “People videotaped it, it was great.”
Sweetin says her engagement ring “is so beautiful.” The ring is a 2½-carat oval sapphire, surrounded by 18 diamonds in a snowflake shape.
So when is the wedding date?
“We are in no hurry as far as dates or anything like that,” says Sweetin, who adds that gay marriage rights factor into their decision to wait.
“We want to wait until there’s equality for everybody to get married,” Sweetin’s fiance Coyle adds.
When asked what if that day of equality is not any time soon, Sweetin says, “That’s okay. We were absolutely committed before this, anyway. We’re just so excited.”
The couple has been dating for almost two years and have a 5-month-old daughter, Beatrix. Sweetin also has a two-year-old daughter, Zoie, with her ex-husband Cody Herpin.
