Kelly Rowland’s Proposal — BF Tim Witherspoon Popped The Question Via Skype

Kelly and her fiancé, Tim Witherspoon, have been keeping their love on the low down for years, but it seems she just couldn’t hide her excitement about their engagement another minute!

Kelly, 32, revealed to Queen that Tim popped the question via Skype while she was in Bulgaria.

“He asked me first on Skype,” she said, laughing. “And I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.'”

“It was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other,” Kelly explained. “And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, ‘I got my best friend to ride through life with.’ He really is my best friend.”

Aww, how sweet! We wish Kelly and Tim a lifetime of happiness!
