According to People, LeAnn and Eddie are engaged.
Her rep said in a statement today, "Yes, they were engaged over the holidays and are very happy.”
The rep said they "had family and close friends in town who helped them celebrate."
The two were spotted
all over each other in Malibu on Monday, and LeAnn’s ring was front and center. A source says it’s a 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," says the source, who adds that Rimes and Cibrian designed the ring together with the actor's childhood friend Brent Polacheck at Polacheck Jewelers.
Ok, so that clearly means LeAnn instructed Eddie to propose to her, and told him exactly what she wanted the ring to look like. No element of surprise necessary!
How much do you want to bet they really did get engaged back in November when E! reported that it happened, and they wanted to sell their engagement pics to a magazine…Remember how bad LeAnn freaked out on E! on Twitter?!
So they conveniently waited until the slowest celebrity news week of the year to “announce” their engagement. LeAnn is probably cursing Natalie Portman’s rep for releasing her engagement and pregnancy news on the same day.
UPDATE: LeAnn wanted everyone to know this is the first time she and Eddie are engaged, so she tweeted, "Eddie and I got engaged over the holidays. That's the news. It's for real this time and the first time EVER!"
"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 tweeted. "It was nice to have our little secret for us our families and friend's a few days! So excited to now share the wonderful news with our fans."
"Today, yesterday, the day before that…all have been truly unforgettable."
And still.....no one cares.
