R&B singer Keyshia Cole has more than one reason to celebrate the New Year - she is engaged and expecting her first child with fiance, basketball star DANIEL 'BOOBIE' GIBSON.
Cole, 28, and the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 23, became engaged on New Year's Eve (31Dec09).
Her spokesperson has confirmed the baby news after weeks of speculation, adding the proposal was "an absolute surprise".
The representative tells UsMagazine.com, "When he asked her to marry him, she was flabbergasted. He presented her with the ring and her mouth dropped in amazement. It's too beautiful for words."
The Last Night singer first sparked speculation she was pregnant with Gibson's baby in November (09) when she was spotted sporting a rounder figure at a party. Last month (Dec09), she showed off her bulging belly at a Christmas charity event in California, but refused to confirm reports she was with child.
Cole and Gibson have been dating for less than a year.
