Cee Lo Green Engaged
Cee Lo Green is set to tie the knot again, now that he’s engaged to longtime girlfriend.
Green apparently proposed to Shani James sometime last year but kept their upcoming union on the hush.
PEOPLE can confirm that the Grammy-winning singer is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Shani James.
While filming a music video for his song “Work,” which will be released on his new album, Heart Blanche, Green decided to spill some intimate details of the unexpected news exclusively with PEOPLE.
With James, 38, by his side, Green couldn’t help but reminisce the moment he proposed.
“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, tells PEOPLE.
“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?’
To James’ surprise, Green had a special (and shiny) gift waiting for her.
“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.’
She adds, “I said, ‘Babe, I can’t believe it.’ He said, ‘You’ve been such a good woman. You’re such and amazing person. You’re my life partner. You’re my best friend. I want to share the rest of my life with you.'”
Isn’t sweet black love grand?
