eddie cibrian leann rimes tabu gi 500 LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian join engagement paloozaWhat began with finger sucking has resulted with Eddie Cibrian putting a ring on it.

The actor and LeAnn Rimes have joined the slew of celebrities who’ve gotten engaged in recent days including Natalie Portman, Jason Mraz and Ginnifer Goodwin. “Yes, they were engaged over the holidays and are very happy,” a rep confirms to People.

Us has a picture of the rather hefty engagement ring, a 5-carat oval diamond.

Rimes took to Twitter to confirm as well. “Thank you for all your well wishes!!” she writes. “We are extremely excited and look forward to a beautiful future. It’s been an incredible last few days, I was shocked!!! We are blessed, our families are so happy and our lives are filled with love.”

The couple met and fell for each other on the set of Lifetime’s “Northern Lights” amidst scandal since both were married to other people at the time. Despite this rocky start, they’ve come through with a commitment. Oddly enough, the news of their engagement has been somewhat eclipsed by “Black Swan” star Portman’s double whammy of surprise engagement and pregnancy news.

“So funny, my dear publicist is the same rep for Natalie Portman and me,” comments Rimes on Twitter. “So much for his vacation lol!!! Love you Rhett!!!!!”

Cibrian shares custody of two children with his ex Brandi Glanville, so Rimes better fire up her stepmothering skills.
