"Future surprised Ciara with an engagement ring this weekend, also her birthday weekend, in New York City," said the couple's publicist, Chris Chambers.
"The ring, which doubled as a special birthday gift, is a beautiful 15-carat emerald cut diamond designed by Avianne & Co."
"Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver," Ciara Tweeted Sunday. "If I'm Dreaming I Don't Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!:)"
In August, the rapper said he was ready to settle down with his girlfriend, telling Hot 97's Angie Martinez, "I don't get into nothing to get out. We haven't set a date. This the one. I said it before, I said it seven years ago, so for it to come around and happen, it was just meant to be."
This will be the first marriage for both.
