The 34-year-old actress said on Tuesday's episode of "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon that she was instantly attracted to LoCicero when he played the male stripper Don Quixote on The CW series.
"He came on as a stripper that my mother hired for my bachelorette party. Jane is, like, super against it and super terrified and just, like, doesn't know what to do with all that. But Gina does," Rodriguez told host Jimmy Fallon with a smile.
"He's like a walking Photoshop. Like, perfection. It's so terrifying," she said. "I think I was, like, drooling and trying to remember my lines at that moment."
Rodriguez had voiced her gratitude for LoCicero at the beginning of the interview. She credited "Jane the Virgin" with introducing her to the love of her life.
"I got engaged! I got engaged to the most amazing man ever," the star said. "I feel very lucky -- very, very lucky."
"So, Jane gave me a lot of things. Not only an amazing life and a dream come true, but they gave me my love -- the love of my life," she added.
Rodriguez announced her engagement to LoCicero in August. She couldn't help but gush about the actor in an interview with Us Weekly at the time.
