His engagement comes right on the heels of Rimes’s own engagement rumors.

More than a year since her relationship with Eddie Cibrian made headlines – Rimes has admitted to being unfaithful to Sheremet with Cibrian – Rimes says there is no ring on her finger from Cibrian – yet.

“Eddie and I are beyond happy and in love and look forward to one day sharing such private news with you all,” she wrote in an extended Tweet.

“Hopefully will be able to enjoy it privately and share it with our family and friend’s before the world knows.”
