On the set of his new music video Work, the happy couple decided to spill the beans about their big day!
The Forget You vocalist says he popped the question when him and his boo were at the studio!
He said :
"I went and purchased a ring that we had seen together, maybe four or five months or so prior. I went back and purchased the ring and I just kind of had it stashed away in some old equipment. And I said, 'Will you reach in there and grab something for me?'"
When James reached into the bag, she pulled out a ring!
"It was the most beautiful diamond ring I had ever seen in my life. It was lit up by a light… I said, 'What is that?' He just looked at me and said, 'Well…?' And I was just like 'Oh my goodness.'"
But why did they take so long to tell the media?
According to the artist:
"Truth be told, it's not something we wanted to promote… We're a collective power together because our private life is sacred. But you know what though, maybe it's time. Maybe it is time for the world to know that I have a very secure situation and a loving woman supporting me the entire way."
Congrats to CeeLo and Shani on this wonderful news!
