Jennifer Aniston is so happy she could cry.

And in fact, she did cry Monday night on E!’s Chelsea Lately, wiping away tears as she acknowledged her engagement to Justin Theroux.

“I just got verklempt,” the actress, 43, said after she got all choked up when Chelsea Handler brought up her fiancé.

“He’s the greatest guy ever,” Handler, 37, told her. “You guys make the greatest couple ever.”

Regaining her composure, Aniston poked fun at Handler, a longtime friend, for trying to be like her – suggesting Handler stole her yoga teacher and fitness coach recently. Now, Aniston added, Handler just needs to get engaged too!

“That would be a good thing to do,” Aniston said. “Make an honest woman out of you!”
