Selita Ebanks and Nick Cannon to Actually Get Married

by at . Comments

When The Hollywood Gossip staff first heard about Selita Ebanks and Nick Cannon dating, we jumped to the conclusion that they got married.

We made the same premature mistake regarding America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams.

Sorry. We just get really excited about the prospects of young love.

But we are now proud to report that Cannon and Ebanks are truly engaged, after the Drumline actor proposed to the Victoria's Secret model Monday with the help of a jumbotron in Times Square.

The ex-boyfriend of Kim Kardashian got on one knee with a 12-carat diamond ring immediately after the couple left the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala, when they were chauffeured in a Rolls Royce to Times Square. Projected on a giant MTV jumbotron were the words, "Selita will you marry me?"

Soon to be following in the married footsteps of Neve Campbell and John Light, the pair celebrated afterwards at New York nightclub Butter, with Cannon surprising Ebanks by flying in his mother, both her parents and best friends into town. Selita was smiling from ear to ear all night.

And not just because she'll get more exposure at work now that Gisele Bundchen and Victoria's Secret have parted ways.

In February, Cannon gushed to People magazine about his romance with Ebanks, calling her "amazing" and saying she changed him from being a player to the man he is today.

It was the sort of sentiment Usher can relate to after falling for Tameka Foster.
