LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Are Engaged
As reported by MTV.com, country and western superstar (and tabloid favorite) LeAnn Rimes announced on December 27th that she and boyfriend Eddie Cibrian are marriage-bound.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s journey to the alter has been anything but smooth sailing. Instead, their story reads more like a fractured tale of heartbreak, conflict, adultery and drama that could easily fill up a country album or two (throw in a dog somewhere, a few oil rigs and some politics, and it could even turn into a mini-series).
All of this, of course, is because the couple’s fledgling love, which was sparked on the set of their film Northern Lights, faced an inconvenient obstacle: they were both married. This, however, was not insurmountable, as the two divorced from their spouses and freed themselves up to tie the knot. Reflecting on the drama that she both sparked and starred in, Rimes told MTV.com “That’s just not me. What happened is not who I am, period. … You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love.”
Rimes, who was seen sporting a 5-carat oval diamond that was designed by the new couple and Cibrian’s childhood friend Brent Polacheck, had this to say to her followers via Twitter: “Thank you for all your well wishes!! 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. It was nice to have our little secret for us, our families and friends a few days! So excited to now share the wonderful news with our fans.”
