Congratulations to Kelly Rowland and boyfriend Tim Witherspoon!

The singer, 32, revealed in an interview on "The Queen Latifah Show" on Dec. 17 that she is engaged to boyfriend and manager Witherspoon, and have been for quite some time.

"It's been awhile, we've kept it very, very low for years, to be completely honest," Rowland said of her newly announced engagement.

Rowland also revealed to Latifah the unconventional way the couple first became engaged, telling the talk show host the proposal happened over the Internet.

"It actually happened on Skype. He asked me first on Skype and I was like, 'Why are we so far away from each other?," Rowland said to Latifah.

"I was in, like, Bulgaria somewhere," Rowland continued. "But it was so late, I remember we were both just kind of, honestly 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 got my best friend to ride through life with.' He really is my best friend."

Rowland's engagement news comes after a banner year for the singer. In February, she reunited with former Destiny's Child members Beyonce and Michelle Williams during Super Bowl XLVII to perform a medley of hits during Beyonce's halftime performance. The singer also released the album, "Talk A Good Game" and currently serves as a judge on the FOX singing competition show "The X Factor."
