Coyle popped the question at Sweetin’s 29th birthday party on Monday, presenting the blonde with a a 2½-carat oval sapphire, surrounded by 18 diamonds in the shape of a snowflake.

“It was a complete surprise,” Sweetin told PEOPLE. “We are just thrilled and I am in shock still!”

She added: “People videotaped it, it was great. My friend decorated the whole place with little diamonds on the table and other touches.”

Sweetin, 28, also has a two-year-old daughter, Zoie, with ex-husband Cody Herpin. Sweetin and Herpin finalized their divorce las April after separating nearly two years before. In her memoir UnSweetined, Jodie described nearly losing custody of Zoie because of her addiction to alcohol and crystal methamphetamine.
