The rumors are true: Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver (and Dancing With the Stars alum) Chad Ochocinco is getting hitched.

He announced that he is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show Tuesday.

"Yeah, man ... It's time for me to sit down," he said after being asked about the rumors. "Enough is enough. I'm 32, you know, my days are over."

He said he knows Lozada -- who's been sporting a 10-carat ring from Jason Beverly Hills -- was The One.

"I think I found everything I've been looking for in one person," he told Seacrest, adding that she is "close enough" to being perfect.

Expect kids someday, he added.

"Maybe [we'll have] ... a couple babies," he told Seacrest. "You never know what'll happen."
