She may be an A-list actress, but Liv Tyler says her life isn’t all glitz and glamor.

The Leftovers star appears on The FABLife on Friday to talk about her fiancé David Gardner’s proposal for the first time, admitting he caught her off guard.

“It was very sweet. I was very surprised. I had no idea! And I didn’t look very attractive,” Tyler, 38, tells co-hosts Chrissy Teigen and Joe Zee.

“I was pregnant, and I was like crying and had just come out of the shower, and I was like unpacking,” adds Tyler, laughing. “It wasn’t a very glamorous moment!”

“I think you think that,” insists Zee, who just announced he’s set to wed longtime love Rob Younkers. “But I think in his head, it was probably the most beautiful moment ever.”

Tyler caused a social media stir when she shared an Instagram of her gorgeous sparkler last month, but PEOPLE confirmed in September that the couple had been engaged for nearly a year.

The actress and sports manager welcomed their first child together, Sailor Gene, in February. Tyler and Gardner each have a son from their previous marriages.

The FABLife airs weekdays (check local listings).
