LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are engaged… for real this time.
The couple, who tweeted a pretend engagement photo on Halloween, have confirmed to CNN that they were engaged “over the holidays and are very happy.”
On Monday, the singer was spotted wearing her engagement ring - a 5-carat oval diamond, according to People - on a Malibu beach.
After wracking up a good number of “Congrats!” on Twitter, Rimes responded: “Thank you for all your well wishes!! We are extremely excited and look forward to a beautiful future. It's been an incredible last few days, I was shocked!!! We are blessed, our families are so happy and our lives are filled with love.”
Rimes, 28, and Cibrian, 37 allegedly began their relationship in 2008 after meeting on the set of their Lifetime movie, “Northern Lights.” They each ended their previous marriages in 2009.
