They are known to bring good luck in the new year, but one Black-Eyed Pea got lucky early. After 3 years of dating
and Josh Duhamel are engaged, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
"Fergie called a lot of her girlfriends today to tell them the news," a source close to the singer told PEOPLE. "She said they don't know what kind of wedding they want yet, but that she is the happiest girl on earth."
The Las Vegas
star's rep would say only that they got engaged "recently," but not on Christmas. TMZ.com
first reported the engagement news Wednesday.
Fergie was seen sporting a diamond ring on her all-important digit back in November, during the American Music Awards, but her rep denied the engagement rumors then. The couple celebrated Duhamel's 35th birthday
last month with lots of love and little fanfare.
