Nick Cannon Proposes -- for Real This Time!

5/8/2007 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MTV kingpin Nick Cannon rocked the world of his longtime girlfriend, Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks -- by busting out a HUGE 12 carat rock, and asking for her blinged-out hand in marriage. Obviously, she obliged.

The couple, who attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, were ferried to Times Square in a Rolls Royce Phantom (natch). But the real exercise in extravagance didn't begin until the words, "Selita will you marry me?" lit up on the giant Jumbotron in the Square. Nothing says "I love you" like a two-story electronic proposal! Cannon then whipped out the hardware (the ring) and sealed the deal!

The happy couple then went to NYC hotspot Butter to celebrate. Cannon surprised his new fiancee by flying in her parents and best friends. Then Nick and Selita left their impromptu engagement party to catch a private plane back to L.A. so Nick could be back at work Tuesday morning.

Rumors had been circulating that the two had been secretly married back in February, apparently, she was waiting for a proper proposal ... and got one!

I agree they make a good/cute couple. But labeling her as his "longtime" girlfriend? They have only been together since January... even by Hollywood standards that is streching the "longtime" label.

Poor Christina Milian. First she lost her man, (Nick) to a Victoria Secret model then her record deal. Oh well, don't worry Christina, you'll have a man and a job soon. But that's messed up. Christina spent all that time with Nick, helping him to grow up and be a man, only for this Tyra Banks wanna be to reap the benefits of Christina's hard work.

The shape of the stone is a cushion cut with half moon shape on each side. But it looks to me like its 12ct total weight not a 12ct center stone. Either way its awesome!

This is just like what happened to Jessica Simpson. UPGRADE! Kristina you had his heart and now this is what you get. To be with any man for a length of time and see him happy with another woman after you dumped him....that has to hurt.



We can all think that they will never be happy without you....NOT!
