After adamantly denying reports that she and her boyfriend, Eddie Cibrian got engaged last month, singer LeAnn Rimes is now telling her fans on Twitter that she and Eddie are engaged to be married.
"For those who haven't read, Eddie and I got engaged over the holidays," tweeted Rimes. "That's the news. It's for real this time and the first time EVER!" she added.
Rimes says she was "shocked" by Eddie's proposal and thanked fans for their support on Twitter. "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," she wrote.
According to People.com, Rimes and Cibrian were spotted on a Malibu beach on Monday and the country singer was wearing a new, 5-carat oval diamond, set in rose gold fleur-de-lis connected to the band.
"The couple wanted an antique feel, but a new ring," a source tells the website, adding that Rimes and Cibrian designed the ring together.
In November, E! News reported that Rimes and Cibrian had gotten engaged, but at the time Rimes denied the news on Twitter, calling the story, "150 percent untrue."
LeAnn, 28, met Eddie, 37, while filming the Lifetime original movie, Northern Lights.
