Hey A.J., let us know when you set a date!

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean is celebrating more than just his birthday this weekend — he’s also toasting a new engagement! While partying at Las Vegas’ Wasted Space nightclub with girlfriend Rochelle Deanna Karidis last night, A.J. asked the DJ to turn off the music so he could ask a very important question, People is reporting. Eyewitnesses saw the Backstreet Boy get down on one knee and place a ring on his new bride-to-be’s finger.

“She seemed very surprised and didn’t seem to know why he was getting on stage,” a source tells the mag. “Even his friends were shocked. They all knew he was going to propose but didn’t think he would do it tonight.”

Apparently it was pretty spur of the moment — another source tells People that A.J. bought the ring at Rocks, a jewelry store at the Hard Rock Hotel, just hours before proposing to Rochelle!

Wow! Don’t lose that spontaneity, A.J. It’ll keep your romance alive for years to come.
