La Toya Jackson secretly engaged

La Toya Jackson has revealed that she is engaged.

The star, 58, who has her own reality TV show, Life With La Toya, has been secretly engaged since last August, People reported.

The singer was enjoying a dinner in her Hawaii hotel suite with Jeffre Phillips, 46, who is also her business partner, when he asked her to marry him.

She told People that he dropped down on one knee but told her: "I don't have a ring for you."

But she revealed: "When I lifted (the lid) for the dessert, there was the ring," a 17.5 carat number which was designed by her fiance.

The star said: "He found exactly what I would like or want. It's really beautiful. It's very, very big. It's a heavy one too."

She added that viewers of her TV show will see how shocked she was by the proposal, adding: "Let's just say it wasn't a fast yes... It's a roller coaster ride."
