It's official. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are engaged. We know, we reported it before, and she said it was 150 percent untrue. This time it's legit.
"Yes, they were engaged over the holidays and are very happy," her rep says, adding that "family and close friends in town helped them celebrate."
Astoundingly, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes were spotted on a Malibu beach on Monday, where she was wearing her giant new engagement ring.
ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING: This time, the engagement's real.
In November, engagement rumors swirled after the couple posted a photo on Twitter which showed Cibrian on bended knee and holding Rimes' hand.
That turned out to be a Halloween prank, but numerous reports said Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes were engaged days later. The couple denied it.
E! News stood by its story, however, leading us to believe they simply didn't want it to get out yet (and/or hadn't secured a good story/photo deal).In any case, the once-secret romance that began on the set of a Lifetime film while both were married to other people has come so far so fast.
Rimes will soon become stepmother to Cibrian's kids, Mason, 7, and Jake, 3. Hopefully Brandi Glanville isn't wearing a belt or shoelaces right now.
LeAnn's ex, Dean Sherement, recently got re-engaged himself to Sarah Silver. Looks like everyone's moving on, and we wish for their happiness.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
