Birthday girl Kelly Rowland opens up about engagement

ON AIR: Rowland appears on The View

KELLY ROWLAND kicked off her 33rd birthday celebration with a visit to American all-female talk show The View.

The Motivation singer appeared on the show yesterday (Feb 11) and chatted with Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Jenny McCarthy about her birthday plans and her engagement to her manager and “best friend” Tim Witherspoon.

"I just want to eat and I like being around good friends, good family and good food, that's what makes me happy", she said.

The couple have been together for four years, and Rowland added: "We have a mutual friend and Tim was like that's my dream girl and he got me."

She also revealed they were planning an intimate wedding later this year.

“I want it to be small, just him, myself and God, and just a beautiful setting and just call it a day", she said.

The former Destiny’s Child singer has remained tight-lipped about her personal life ever since she broke off her 2006 engagement with American football player Roy Williams.

Spilling the details on how Witherspoon proposed, the singer said: "He asked me first on Skype while I was in Bulgaria and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.'"

Rowland, who was a judge on last year's The X Factor US, spoke about its cancellation.

She added: "It was the best experience I've ever had, getting to know the contestants. Simon [Cowell] is so fun, but I had such a ball.

"It's really sad to see it go, but we really had a good time."
