"Elizabeth got engaged last weekend in Salt Lake City," her rep confirmed to Us Weekly. "She's incredibly excited about this next chapter in life and pending wedding."

Both Smart, 24, and her rep remain tight-lipped about every further detail of the proposal, wedding plans and even who her fiance is.

"She has decided that she wants to keep the details of her personal life private," her rep continued. "She wants to continue to be involved with her child advocacy work, but, at the same time, she doesn't want her husband or children to be in the spotlight."

This is the second dose of happy news in the past year for Smart. In July, she landed a paid news contributor position at ABC, where in her role, she "helps our viewers better understand missing person stories from someone with the perspective to know what a family experiences when a loved one goes missing," an ABC spokeswoman said.
