While Halle Berry seems to be getting serious with Olivier Martinez, her ex-husband Eric Benet has done some settling down of his own.

The musician, 44, whose divorce from Berry was finalized six years ago, proposed to Manuela Testolini in November with an antique diamond ring he designed, Benet confirms to PEOPLE.

"During a romantic dinner I decided to finally let Manuela hear 'Never Want to Live Without You,' a song off my new album that I had written for her," Benet says. "I sang it to her, then got down on one knee and proposed."

Manuela, an entrepreneur and founder of the charity In A Perfect World, was formerly married to Prince. She has been dating Benet for three years.

The wedding is set for this summer.
