Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are engaged. On Thursday (November 4), the duo shared the news in a joint statement to People.com that read, "We're excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together."
According to sources, Lachey, 36, popped the question to the former MTV "TRL" host, 29, "near a beach" in California on Thursday. The former 98 Degrees singer, who once co-starred with ex-wife Jessica Simpson on MTV's "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica," took to his Twitter to share the happy news with his fans.
"Hey all," he wrote. "If anyone's heard the rumors of my engagement, they are absolutely true! Vanessa and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for all the love."
The couple began dating back in 2006 and teamed up in the video for Lachey's hit solo single "What's Left of Me"; Minnillo starred as his love interest. Lachey and Minnillo suffered a romantic setback when they briefly called it quits in mid-2009, but later reunited.
In addition to celebrating their engagement in November, the duo will also celebrate their birthdays this month, as the stars both turn a year older on November 9. Send your well-wishes for the couple in the comments!
