Kelly Rowland Reveals Her Monster Engagement Ring (For Real This Time)

Posted on

Yes, it is an engagement ring, and it is amazing. After X Factor host Kelly Rowland sparked speculation last month with some new bling on her ring finger, she finally confirms that the giant sparkler on her left hand is, in fact, from her fiancé (and manager) Tim Witherspoon!

The star makes an appearance on The Queen Latifah Show Wednesday and can’t contain her excitement or stop smiling as she shows off her 4-carat-plus cushion-cut sparkler. (Watch the clip here.)

“He put a ring on it,” she gushes. “We’ve kept [our relationship] very, very low — for years, to be completely honest.” (And all that practice paid off: She’s kept her engagement low-key, though we don’t know how she refrained from posting that ring all over her Instagram).

So did he ask with a big, romantic gesture? Well, not exactly. “He asked me first on Skype, and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other!’ [But] it was that simple to say yes. I have my best friend to ride through life with.”

What do you think of Rowland’s bauble? Are you surprised she kept her engagement a secret for so long?
