After more than two months, Jennifer Aniston finally broke her silence about her engagement to Justin Theroux when she appeared on "Chelsea Lately" on Monday night.
The 43-year-old actress has taken many steps to keep as quiet as possible since Theroux popped the question in August. She even hid her enormous engagement ring every time she was in public, and it took photographers two months to snap a shot of the diamond.

But Aniston finally opened up on the talk show of her good friend Chelsea Handler, even crying as she discussed her fiance.
"I just got verklempt," Aniston said as she fought back tears in the interview with Handler.
The tears were likely a combination of her love for Theroux and support from her good friend. Handler began the interview by saying how happy she is for Aniston now that she's finally found the right man.
"Aw, aren't you so happy?" Handler said. "You are happy, because he's the greatest guy ever, and you guys make the greatest couple ever, and I'm so happy for you too."
Aniston even made fun of Handler, who she joked is always imitating Aniston by picking the same doctors of yoga teachers. Aniston added that Handler should follow suit and get engaged herself.
"That would be wonderful. It would make an honest woman out of you," Aniston said with a laugh.
The interview was Aniston's first official public appearance since her engagement and she showed off her diamond engagement ring proudly. The enormous stone has been valued at approximately $500,000 by several jewelry experts.
But not everyone is as happy with Aniston's ring as she seems to be. One jeweler who spoke with The Daily Mail said he thought the piece could have been more understated and sophisticated to match Aniston's style.
"Jennifer's engagement ring is valuable, for sure, but a stone that size is not exactly sophisticated," the jewelry expert said. "In fact, one might argue that it is downright gaudy. It looks like it belongs on the hand of a Real Housewife. I love Jennifer's clean and elegant aesthetic, but this ring is completely at odds with that."
