R'n'B star Nivea and rapper Lil' Wayne have confirmed they're heading for the altar with a fairytale wedding planned in Hawaii next year (04).

The young couple sealed their love for each other in December (02), but have been keen to keep their engagement secret.

DON'T MESS WITH MY MAN singer Nivea, 21, revealed all about her 20-year-old toy-boy's proposal before Christmas, and even named the date of the wedding - 9 March (04) - during an interview in American urban magazine SISTER TO SISTER.

She says, "Wayne said, 'I got your Christmas present with me and you're gonna love it. It's gonna make you smile.'

"He got down on his knee and he was like, 'I know I'm young, but I've been through enough relationships to know and understand the meaning of what love is.' He was just perfect.

"He told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and he loved me. It was snot and tears at the same time."

Nivea reveals the HOT BOYS star picked 9 March for their nuptials because that's the date his mother married his late father.

Wayne already has a four-year-old daughter, and the couple are keen to add to that.

Nivea adds, "I want a little boy very much right now. Wayne's daughter is just wonderful. She's a beautiful little girl."
