Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and his longtime girlfriend Nicole Pantenburg are engaged after seven years of dating, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The singer, 54, first revealed that he had popped the question to Pantenburg, 40, in a surprising BET interview Thursday with Toni Braxton, his collaborator on their joint album Love, Marriage & Divorce.

“Would you ever consider getting married again?” Braxton, 46, asked Babyface.

“I’ve already considered it,” he responded. “I’m engaged, so yes.”

Babyface and Pantenburg are parents to daughter Peyton Nicole, 5. He also has two sons with ex-wife Tracey Edmonds.
