"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 tells UsMagazine.com. "I sang it to her, then got down on one knee and proposed."

Adds a rep for the singer -- who has 18-year-old daughter India from a previous relationship, "They are engaged and very happy." 

Testolini, who was wed to Prince from 2001 to 2006, flashed some sparkly bling on her wedding finger at an event in November (see left).
