About a month ago we told you that these lovebirds were tying the knot, but it was a false alarm! But now it’s safe to say it’s official!

A sincere congratulations are in order for country star LeAnn Rimes and her actor beau Eddie Cibrian. The couple, who were thought to be engaged this past November, are indeed walking down the aisle according to People, and it happened over the Christmas holiday.

“Yes, they were engaged over the holidays and are very happy,” LeAnn’s rep tells People. “[They] had close friends in town who helped them celebrate.”

But Eddie, 37, didn’t just pop the question with an ordinary ring! LeAnn, 28, is now sporting a gorgeous “5-carat oval diamond platinum engagement ring with a rose gold fleur-de-lis,” adds the magazine.

LeAnn met Eddie while filming the Lifetime movieNorthern Lights, and instantly fell in love. The only problem? They were both married to other people.

“It wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us,” LeAnn told Shape magazine about her marriage to Dean Sheremet. “As we got older, we grew apart.”
