After dodging the tirade of engagement questions that have been hurled at her for the past couple of weeks, Kelly Rowland finally broke down and admitted to what we already knew: She’s engaged to her longtime boyfriend and manager, Tim Witherspoon. If you recall, engagement rumors about Kelly and Tim resurfaced a few weeks ago when she appeared in an Instagram video donning a huge rock on her wedding finger.
The “X Factor” judge shyly confirmed her engagement to her buddy Queen Latifah during a recent appearance on the “Queen Latifah Show.”
“He put a ring on it,” the “Dirty Laundry” singer finally confessed, holding up her left hand.
Her admission prompted the audience to go wild and Queen to release a big smile. Apparently the two have been engaged for years, but only Kelly’s closest friends—including Queen—knew about.
“Yes, it’s official. It’s been awhile. We’ve kept it very, very low for years to be completely honest,” the 32-year-old beauty continued.”
As for how Tim popped the question, Kelly adorably confessed that the proposal occurred while she and Tim were miles away from each other.
“Um, it happened on Skype,” said Kelly. “It actually happened on Skype. He asked me first on Skype and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.’ I was in like Bulgaria somewhere. It was so late and I remember, we were both honestly, just starring at each other and he asked me.”
The former Destiny’s Child singer went on to say that without even having to think about it, she instantly agreed to marry her love bug.
“It was just that simple to say, ‘Yes.’ I have my best friend to ride through life with. He really is my best friend.”
Of course, now that she has openly admitted to being engaged, nosy folks like us are wondering when the wedding will be. But we won’t jump the gun. Instead, we’ll just offer our congrats!!!
