This year is turning out to be a huge one for Colombian American actress Alexa Vega!

She recently got engaged to Big Time Rush star Carlos Pena, Jr. and she's been busy traveling to promote her new flick Machete Kills.

We caught up with the 25-year-old belleza to get the scoop on her latest role, snag details about her engagement and find out how things have been going since she's moved on from being a child star.

Check out our exclusive interview with Alexa below:

Congrats on your engagement! We were all so excited when we saw the news. When we spoke with Carlos [Pena Jr.] this summer he was just gushing about you! Super sweet!

He is a cutie patootie that one.

So we've got to know, how did he do it?

Well, we were on a cruise. It was the end of the Big Time Rush Tour and we decided to vacation together, all of us. There were about 35 of us, some of my family members, the crew and the band. It was like an end of summer thing that we did. On the first night that we were there, we were at dinner and Carlos was giving this long speech and he turned to me and said, “Baby you said if the time was ever right, even if I had a ring or not, I should propose and luckily for you I have a ring.” And he got down on one knee and proposed. It was so unexpected because earlier that day we were talking about when we would start looking for rings, so I expected this to be something that would be happening next year!

Have you started making any wedding plans yet?

Not really, we just got a house so we started moving everything in now. Once we’re done with that, I am sure we will start planning.
