Put a ring on it: Kelly Rowland confirms engagement

RING FINGER: Newly engaged Kelly Rowland

FORMER DESTINY Child's singer Kelly Rowland has finally put rumours to rest and confirmed she is engaged to her manager and "best-friend" Tim Witherspoon, who used Skype to pop the question.

The 32-year-old made the announcement during this week's appearance (Dec 16) on an episode of The Queen Latifah Show.

The American X Factor judge has remained tight-lipped about her personal life ever since she broke off her 2006 engagement with American football player Roy Williams.

“He [Witherspoon] put a ring on it,” said a beaming Kelly while showing off the diamond engagement ring that she has been wearing in public.

“It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low - for years, to be completely honest”.

The singer revealed that Witherspoon popped the question via Skype while she was in Bulgaria.

"He asked me first on Skype and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other,’” Rowland added.

“But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, ‘I got my best friend to ride through life with.’ He really is my best friend.”
