Kelly Rowland has confirmed she is engaged to her manager Tim Witherspoon. The 32-year-old beauty says she feels she is marrying her "best friend" after he proposed via Skype.

The former Destiny's Child star - who was first rumoured to have got engaged late last month after flaunting a diamond engagement ring in a short video on Instagram - will walk down the aisle with her on/off beau of four years after he popped the question over Skype.

'The X Factor' USA judge was in Bulgaria when Tim proposed to her, she recalled in an interview on 'The Queen Latifah Show', which airs tomorrow (18.12.13).

She gushed: "He put a ring on it!

"He asked me first on Skype and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other.' 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."

The 32-year-old beauty, who was previously engaged to NFL football player Roy Williams, feels she has finally found the right person and thinks of Tim as her "best friend".

She added: "I was like, 'I got my best friend to ride through life with.' He really is my best friend."

The 'Kisses Down Low' singer is notoriously private about her love life and admits she has kept her romance quiet for quite some time.

She said: "It's been a while. We've kept it very, very low - for years, to be completely honest."
