LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are engaged

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.

    She'll be with him until the next "other woman" comes along, then LeeAnn will be in the same place that Eddie's ex-wife is in now.

    They have just as much rights as anybody else to be happy. Tell me they're the first to have an affair? All you jealous people, let them live their lives. They are no part of your life anyway. They can do what they want just like you can do what you want and I'm sure you do! Keep it alive Eddie & LeAnn. I Love You Two! Did you set a wedding date yet?

    You can tell by the look on HIS face, he is not into it like she is! He smiles alot but there's something else going on in that relationship! He has lost his job over this mess with her. She helped design her ring, but she couldn't believe he asked her. That ring is really beautiful, but he has NO JOB, and a child support bill ! If he bought that ring, I wonder does he have that kind of money! I know she does!

    Listen, to me I do not care if Eddie and LeAnn get engaged or get married because what they did to their former spouses will always be in the back of their minds. LeAnn's former husband is hotter than Eddie anyway and if he is gay so what. I hope when they get married they have a wonderful honeymoon and then cheat on each other with the hotel staff.

  18. Pastor J

    As a pastor I have to laugh at everyone's interpretation of the Bible most whom never read it. It is a sin what they did. However it is not unforgivable. They need to repent and make it right which sounds like what they might be doing but we dont know we arent there. When did pointing out sin become a sinful act? The Bible says if you judge someone in turn you will be judged in that same manner. So if you"ve nothing to hide go on and judge but dont cry if your secrets are made known. I pray they repent. I pray they marry and make the situation right. David cheated with another woman and they repented and eventually through that was born Solomon whose very line Jesus came through. God can still work through our shortcomings.

    Everyone on here makes me sick. First of all the article didnt say cheat so you dont knw that. Second I can see ya'll point with Our Heavanly Father and the Bible but still using it in that order dosent seem right. Cheating yes is adultry and yes it is a very bad thing we dont knw how the relationship started out! It could have been a friendship! My gosh this is stupid. Ya'll are making assumptions and its not right. Have of yall on here have done this or smiliar! Peace Out!

    I can't congratulate them. Their relationship is based upon lies and scandal. She's a homewrecker used took a man away from his two young children. Its bad enough that she couldn't have enough respect for herself and her own marriage to not mess with a married man. But I believe what goes around comes right back around ten fold.

    I am dating a married man after having been separated from my husband for over a year. I'm madly in love and don't take responsibility for his cheating. It takes two and if he wants to walk away from us he can but he's not. We've been dating for over a year now and he claims he's in love with me as well. I will most likely give him another 6 months to see if he will committ to me. I will walk away if he is not. Now...these two here have found love and are happy with each other. Stop hating and mind your own! I hope they'll be happy for an eternity. It's not fun getting stuck in a deadbeat relationship, even if kids are involved. They did the right thing by ending their marraige and inevitably cut short the unnecessary pain they cld have caused their significant others.

      They will cheat again so they may as well save the money and not get married, although it does buy them publicity.
      The right way is to end a marriage then move on. Cheating isn't the answer.
      Why would you give that cheating lover 6 months? Now or never. He doesn't respect you now so why would he in 6 months? You're just giving him 6 more months of a free ride. Respect yourself and move on. Cheaters ALWAYS cheat again.

    Their engagement is JOKE!!!,
    She doesn't have any character to be messing around someone else husband and he doesn't have any character to be messing around with someone wife.
    It's obvious that either "Read Bible" because it does mention "GOING TO HELL" for committing adultery and it shows that either has class (maybe trash?),
    I give them 5 years (at most) because they will cheat on each other,

    Not to mention
    Her "singing" career will flop and who wants to listen to wife that committed "this unmoral conduct?,

    His "acting" career has already been damage because of what reason and I tell "She" will be concern when he "knock her up" leave her at home
    to go be with another woman he meets,

    Then she will get a taste of her disgrace medicine and he will not be HAPPY (but probably marrying her for security net because his acting career "Is Flop"),

    This is 1 WEDDING where no one should want to be because it's WRONG!!!!!

    As a Christian, I find these 'burning in Hell' comments disgusting. Whatever happened to the principle of loving the sinner and hating the sin? It's no wonder so many people think Christianity is a joke – these misguided people with their hateful comments are NOT acting in accordance with the teachings of Christ. I pray for people like this every day and truly hope He will fill them with peace, love and joy. Now please – whichever one of you is without sin go ahead and cast the first stone.

      Unfortunately these bible thumpers often believe that they are without sin. By calling out another's sin they in turn sin. Irony at its best. Clearly there is a problem if one feels the need to judge others so much. Must be because they need to feel like they're better than them?

      I'm not defending cheating at all but sometimes it's best for relationships where there is a cheater to end sooner than later. How great is a marriage when one (or both) of the partners keep cheating? The only good reason for staying together in these situations is for the (young) kids.
