He put a ring on it! Kelly Rowland has finally confirmed that she's engaged to her manager, Tim Witherspoon

"The X Factor" judge, real name Kelendria Rowland, publicly let the cat out of the bag during a pretaped segment of "The Queen Latifah Show" that's to air Wednesday.

"He put a ring on it," the Destiny's Child alum said, showing off her colossal cushion-cut ring to the studio audience and quoting Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)."

"It's been a while," the 32-year-old added. "We've kept it very, very low -- for years, to be completely honest."

As for the proposal, well, Rowland admits that she's succumbed to the ways of technology and conveniences of long-distance relationships.

"He asked me first on Skype, and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other!'" she said. 
The "Dirty Laundry" singer added that she was "somewhere in Bulgaria" at the time and that Witherspoon popped the question during a late-night video-chatting session.

"But it was so late. I remember we were both honestly just staring at each other and he asked me," she said. "And it was that simple to say yes. I have my best friend to ride through life with."

No "Dilemma" about that!

It'll be the first marriage for Rowland, who was previously engaged to football player Roy Williams. The pair split in 2005 just months before their wedding.
