Last month, chisme sites were buzzing about Alexa Vega’s engagement to Big Time Rush singer Carlos Pena. Having just divorced in 2012, many thought Alexa wasn’t quite ready for a second marriage…although she begs to differ.

“I’ve been through a marriage and I’m still very fond of my ex-husband,” Vega revealed to People. “And Carlos is pretty incredible. I’ve never met anybody who is as driven and inspires me as much as he does.”

Alexa also confessed that Carlos is the first Latino she’s ever dated. But she said that they get along great and her “crazy Latin family” has embraced him with open arms.

Vega didn’t reveal any details about her big day though. She told the mag that movies and music tours have gotten in the way of wedding planning, but she is definitely enjoying life as a new fiancée.
