Kelly Rowland Gets Engaged On Skype

Kelly Rowland’s man put a ring on it – via Skype!

During an appearance on “The Queen Latifah Show” on Wednesday, the singer/”X Factor” judge confirmed her engagement to her boyfriend and manager Tim Witherspoon.

“He put a ring on it,” she said, showing off her sparkler. “It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low – for years, to be completely honest.”

Tim first popped the question to the 32-year-old star while she was in Bulgaria.

“He asked me first on Skype,” she explained. “And I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.’”

The distance and use of technology didn’t stop Kelly – who has been seen wearing what many thought was an engagement ring since November – from saying yes to the Skype proposal.

“But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, ‘I got my best friend to ride through life with.’ He really is my best friend,” she added.
