“It was a very romantic trip,” Kirkpatrick tells E! News. “I have been thinking about proposing for a while but this was totally spontaneous. Karly is an amazing girl and I am so happy to make her wife.”  

It was so impromptu that he bought the oval-cut diamond ring at a jewelry store on the isle of Capri, where they were staying.

And as for all of the speculation as to whether Kirkpatrick was invited to the Timberlake-Biel wedding, a source tells E! that he wasn’t. None of the other former *NSYNC members were in attendance either. But Kirkpatrick was there for Timberlake’s bachelor party in Vegas, so that’s something.
