We’ll let rumor and hearsay continue to speak for themselves when it comes to her cast-mates, but new girl on the Upper East Side block Kaylee DeFer is more than happy to admit that she is spoken for.

While at Tuesday night’s Denim Habit NYC Grand Opening, DeFer gushed to Celebuzz about her upcoming nuptials to Mike Pereira and her not one, but TWO engagement rings!

Turns out the Gossip Girl star is engaged to a jewelry designer―lucky gal!―and she’s currently sporting his mother’s wedding ring, as well as her custom-made rock that he designed himself! The wedding plans are currently on hold as DeFer continues her reign as Ivy/Charlie on GG,  which, if her recent involvement with Elizabeth Hurley’s conniving character is any indication, may not last long.

But Kaylee spoke with sympathy for her on-screen persona, saying, “You know, she just falls in love with the van der Woodsens... I think that she is struggling with the reality that they’re not really family.” In other words: Back off, haters.
