The singer and Eddie Cibrian became engaged over the Christmas holiday — less than two months after Rimes slammed engagement rumors.
However, this time sounds like the real deal. “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,” she also wrote.
Us Weekly first broke the news that Rimes, 28, and Cibrian, 37, had an off-camera fling in 2009 while shooting the Lifetime flick, Northern Lights. At the time, Rimes was wed to dancer Dean Sheremet; Cibrian was raising two children with his wife, model Brandi Glanville.
