Lil Wayne has got engaged.

The 'Lollipop' hitmaker popped the question to his girlfriend Dhea on Valentine's Day (14.02.12) and he took to his twitter account today (15.02.12) to confirm she accepted his proposal.

He wrote: "She said yes!"

The pair are expected to wed in the spring and the cocktail waitress is e pregnant with Wayne's baby, reports.

The new arrival would be the 29-year-old rapper's fifth child as he already has four kids, including his first Reginae, who was born when he was just 15 to Antonia 'Toya' Carter, whom he was married to between 2004 and 2006.

Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr. - has three other children, who were all born after 2008; Dwayne III, whose mother is unknown, Lennox Samuel Ari, born to actress Lauren London, and Neal, with singer Nivea.

Wayne looks set for a busy 2012 as he is releasing a memoir in November based around the transcribed entries from journals he wrote while in jail for eight months at New York's Rikers Island prison on gun possession charges in 2010.

Ben Greenberg, executive editor at Grand Central Publishing, previously said: "He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story."
