LeAnn Rimes is engaged to actor Eddie Cibrian.

Talk about a major silver lining to their hurricane courtship -- singer Rimes is now rocking a 5-carat diamond in a rose gold setting from her beau.


‘They were engaged over the holidays and are very happy,’ the singer’s rep told People. (So forget anything you might have heard about them getting engaged in November, mmm-kay?)

‘So funny, my dear publicist is the same rep for Natalie Portman and me,’ Rimes tweeted on Monday. ‘So much for his vacation lol!!!

The pair met shooting ‘Northern Lights,’ a Lifetime original movie that aired in 2009. Both stars were married upon meeting, leading to an insanely messy uncovering of their extramarital affair.

‘We make mistakes and we learn from them, but we’re human. We fell in love,’ Rimes told the magazine in November.

Clearly it was worth it for her -- the blond was rocking her engagement bling over Christmas weekend, strolling the beach in Malibu with her beloved.

For the record, 8:25 p.m.: An earlier version of this post referred to karats instead of carats. Gold composition is gauged in karats; diamond size is measured in carats. Thanks to commenter Melissa Mitchell for flagging the error. We’re planning a Tiffany field trip Tuesday to brush up.
