LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian

GSI Media

In case you somehow missed our exclusive scoop last month, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are finally making it official.

After cheating on their respective spouses last year, then splitting with them on their way to shacking up together, the controversial couple has finally copped to being betrothed.

"For those who haven't read, Eddie and I got engaged over the holidays. That's the news. It's for real this tine and the first time EVER!" she tweeted.

Like tell us something we don't already know.

E! News was the first to report last month that Cibrian, 37, actually popped the question around Halloween and that Rimes, 28, gleefully accepted, according to extremely close family sources.

But with the news leaking out before they were ready to go public (and costing them a big-money deal with a glossy), the twosome got "pissed" and tried to deny their engagement.

We're happy to hear the country crooner is singing a different tune now.

"It was nice to have our little secret for us our families and friend's a few days! So excited to now share the wonderful news with our fans," she added.

A few days, huh? Not according to the ex-CSI: Miami star's former missus, Brandi Glanville, the mother of his two children whom he divorced in September.

"They've been engaged forever, but I continue to wish them congratulations and luck!" Glanville told E! News.

Cibrian's publicist also confirmed today's good news. And just for good measure so people know that it's for real this time, LeAnn made sure she was spotted Monday strolling a Malibu beach with Eddie wearing a diamond ring. The platinum sparker is a 5-carat oval diamond set in rose gold fleur-de-lis connected to the band.

"We are extremely excited and look forward to a beautiful future. It's been an incredible last few days," Rimes tweeted. "I was shocked!!! We are blessed, our families are so happy and our lives are filled with love."

Best of luck (again) to the happy couple.
