Singer Rod Stewart and his longtime girlfriend, Penny Lancaster, got engaged in Paris last week, PEOPLE has confirmed.

While the couple were at the top of the Eiffel Tower on March 9, Stewart got down on one knee and proposed. "I left it this long because I wanted to get it right this time," Stewart said in a statement. "I've never been happier and more in love than I am today."

Stewart has been married twice before, to model Rachel Hunter and to Alana Stewart.

The 60-year-old singer and Lancaster, a British model, have been dating for five years. They plan to marry later this year.
