PEOPLE caught up with the Captain America actress at the PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly VIP Upfronts party on Monday evening in New York City, and the star revealed she’s been in a whirlwind since announcing the news last week.
“It’s literally only been a couple of days, but it’s amazing,” she said. “I’m really happy!”
VanCamp, 31, revealed her engagement to Bowman, 29, on Instagram last Thursday, uploading a photo of herself covering her face with her hands, putting her sparkly diamond engagement ring on full display.

Romance rumors first linked the two actors as a couple in January 2012. The two also previously costarred as on-screen husband and wife on Revenge.
VanCamp also opened up about the happy news at the Fox Upfronts on Monday.
“It’s been a crazy week,” VanCamp, whose medical drama The Resident has just been picked up as a pilot, told Entertainment Tonight. “I found out about the show two hours after we got engaged so it was, like — I don’t think I slept for three nights. It’s been good, it’s been really positive.”
As for the proposal? It took place in a forest, and VanCamp gushed that Bowman “did good.”
“We were in nature on a hike kind of doing what we do,” she said. “It was very, sort of, us. It was great — beautiful.”
And for now, wedding planning isn’t even on her mind.
“I never was the girl who knew what she wanted to do for a wedding,” she said. “[I’m] just enjoying this moment. It’s really nice, you know?”
