Kelly Rowland is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Tim Witherspoon, and she’s revealing exactly how he proposed!
“He asked me first on Skype,” she said during an interview on “The Queen Latifah Show” when asked about how they got engaged. “I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.'”
She believes he was somewhere in Bulgaria at the time. “There’s nothing like getting engaged in Bulgaria,” Latifah quipped. “It’s the happiest thing that happened in Bulgaria that day.”
The former Destiny’s Child singer confessed they’ve actually been engaged for quite some time. “It’s been a while,” she said. “We’ve kept it very, very low — for years, to be completely honest.”
When he did propose, the answer was a clear yes. “I remember we were both just kinda staring at each other and he asked me,” she recalled. “It was just that simple to say yes. I got my best friend to ride through life with,” she said. “He really is my best friend.”
Kelly and Tim (who is also her manager) have been dating on and off for the past four years, and even have matching tattoos.
Congrats to the couple!
