Congrats are in order for Cee Lo Green!

The Grammy-winning singer is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Shani James. According to PEOPLE, the musician spilled the beans about the unexpected news while filming a music video for his song “Work,” which will be released on his new album, Heart Blanche.

“It was just a typical night at the studio, but then again, not so typical cause I did something extra special, out of the ordinary,” Green, 41, said. “I went and purchased a ring that we had seen together, maybe four or five months or so prior. I went back and purchased the ring and I just kind of had it stashed away in some old equipment. And I said, ‘Will you reach in there and grab something for me?'”

“It was the most beautiful diamond ring I had ever seen in my life. It was lit up by a light,” says James. “I said, ‘What is that?’ He just looked at me and said, ‘Well…?’ And I was just like, ‘Oh my goodness.’ . . . I said, ‘Babe, I can’t believe it.’ He said, ‘You’ve been such a good woman. You’re such an amazing person. You’re my life partner. You’re my best friend. I want to share the rest of my life with you.'”

As for why the couple, who have been engaged for about a year now, have kept the news hush-hush, they said: “Truth be told, it’s not something we wanted to promote — We’re a collective power together because our private life is sacred. But you know what though, maybe it’s time. Maybe it is time for the world to know that I have a very secure situation and a loving woman supporting me the entire way.”

And while the couple has been engaged for quite some time, it seems as if they are in no rush to walk down the aisle, as they haven’t begun wedding planing just yet. Needless to say, when the time comes, the former “Voice” judge is “prepared to be spontaneous.”

This will be Green’s second marriage. As you may recall, he was previously married to “Atlanta Exes” star Christina Johnson. Best of luck to these two!
