Proving it was more than just an affair of the heart, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are making it official: they’re getting married.
The ‘CSI’ actor, 37, reportedly popped the question to the 28-year-old singer, according to E! News.
The couple’s yearlong romance kicked off amid controversy when the married costars began an adulterous affair while filming the Lifetime movie ‘Northern Lights’ together in 2009.
Rimes was interviewed Wednesday by ABC’s Robin Roberts for an ‘All Access Nashville’ TV special, where she discussed the cheating scandal and fiercely defended their relationship.
“You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work … who just stumbled upon each other and fell in love,” Rimes explained.
“What happened is not who I am, period,” she went on to say. “But I do know how much I love [him]. So I’ve always said I don’t live my life with regret. I can’t.”
Cibrian has two children with his ex-wife Brandi Glanville; Rimes was married to her back-up dancer Dean Sheremet for seven years.
