The former "Friends" star fought back tears when her good friend Chelsea Handler brought up her recent engagement.
"You are engaged?" Handler asked Aniston, prompting loud audience applause.
"Yes!" Aniston confirmed while beaming with joy. "I just got verklempt (Yiddish for overcome with emotion)."
"Aaaaww, aren't you so happy," Handler said as Aniston burst into laughter.
Aniston, who began dating her "Wanderlust" co-star in 2011, accepted his proposal in August on his 41st birthday.
The actress was recently spotted flaunting her oversized engagement ring during an outing with Theroux in Santa Fe, New Mexico. New reports suggest that her new sparkler may be worth over $1 million.
"If this is a fine quality diamond of at least 10 carats, which it looks to be from initial photos, we could be talking about a million dollar ring here," gemology and jewelry expert Anthony Sarkissian of Beverly Hills' Premier Jewelry Lenders reportedly told Hollywoodlife.com.
"10 carat and over diamonds command a premium price in the diamond industry, because they are more rare than smaller diamonds. The ring looks to be a Cushion Cut or Oval Shape diamond, mounted in a classic Halo design. It may have Micro-Pave diamonds around the center stone as well," he went on.
Aniston, who was previously married to actor Brad Pitt, and Theroux are reportedly eager to tie the knot and the couple has allegedly selected Feb. 14 as their wedding date.
"Jen and Justin are super anxious to tie the knot, but they looked at their schedules and decided this coming February 14 is reasonable to shoot for," a source told OK! magazine.
"Jen just wants to make sure they get married before Justin starts filming Swear to God," the source added, referencing to Theroux's upcoming project.
