Does that headline sound familiar? It should, because a rumor did break out last month that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were engaged. False alarm, and LeAnn was reportedly hopping mad at E! for breaking the non-story, sounding off with, “Ok, I’ve about had it with the lack of “reporting” with E News. The fact that our “engagement” has spread so furiously over the past 24 hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the lack of credible “sources” they seem to find and build a story around…”
But this time, the news is for real, and LeAnn’s rep told People, “Yes, they were engaged over the holidays and are very happy.” A source has revealed that the couple apparently designed the ring themselves along with the help of a friend Brent Polacheck, who is a jeweler, saying, “The couple wanted an antique feel, but a new ring.” The resultant engagement ring is supposedly a 5-carat diamond and platinum rock set in rose gold, about which LeAnn tweeted a friend saying, “Thx! Brent, is great friend and he did so well. I only knew about small pieces of it.”
LeAnn also tweeted the happy news, writing, “For those who haven’t read, Eddie and I got engaged over the holidays. That’s the news. It’s for real this tine [sic] and the first time EVER! Congratulation, Eddie and LeAnn. Don’t mess this up!
