Fonzworth Bentley is engaged, he confirms to UsMagazine.com.

"We are so excited!" Bentley -- who first rose to fame when he was photographed holding Diddy's umbrella -- told Us Wednesday.

The singer, author and reality star (From G's to Gents) proposed to actress Faune Chambers (who co-starred with Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) on December 2009 near their Atlanta hometown.

He got down on one knee with a 3-carat asscher-cut diamond from NYC's Ozuro Fine Jewelry.

"I tricked her! She thought it would happen on Christmas but I did it right before New Year's," Bentley tells Us. "She said yes and I was so excited. Afterward, she kept wanting to call and tell her mother and I told her not to - because then we walked into a restaurant where my parents and her parents were waiting. We all had lunch and then I walked them all back to show them where I proposed."

"The wedding is pretty soon!" adds Bentley, 36.

Chambers, 33, also plays the lead in the music video for new single "Greener," off his EP Cool Outrageous Fingerprint (out this summer). Watch it here.

"It's really special to say my fiancee is in the video. I love using that word. You don't get to do it too long, so it's really special!" gushes Bentley.
