During her interview with Queen Latifah on her daytime talk show, “The Queen Latifah Show”, Rowland confirmed the news even showing off her diamond engagement ring.
“It happened on Skype. It actually happened on Skype,” Rowland said. “He asked me first on Skype. And I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other!’ I was in like Bulgaria or somewhere. It was so late. I remember we were both like, just staring at each other. And he asked me. And it was just that simple to say ‘yes.’ I was like,’I got my best friend. I have my best friend to ride through life with’, …he really is my best friend.”
The singer also reveals that she and Witherspoon had been dating for years but didn’t quite reveal just how long.
Rumors of the couples engagement began when Rowland was spotted sporting the massive diamond engagement ring. Speculation fueled even further when an Instagram video emerged of Rowland wishing a daughter’s friend a happy birthday. The ring was, again, on full display, only this time, giving fans a closer look.
The previously taped episode is schedule to air on Wednesday, December, 18, 2013.
