Turns out Chad Ochocinco's gift to Cheryl Burke wasn't the only ring he would give out this year.
After weeks of speculation, the professional football player and former Dancing with the Stars contestant finally confirmed the reports: He is engaged to model Evelyn Lozada.
Evelyn, who was previously set to wed Antoine Walker, has been featured on VH1's Basketball Wives.
"Yeah, man ... It's time for me to sit down," Ochocinco told Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday. "Enough is enough. I'm 32, you know, my days are over."
Despite their histories on reality TV (Chad also starred on Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch), the athlete says their wedding plans will be kept off-camera.

Princess Diana’s famous engagement ring has been given to Prince William’s longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton … and this is strangely odd because the ring never belonged to William at all.
After Diana’s 1997 death, her sons Princes William and Harry were taken to Kensington -- the palace where Di resided -- by their father Prince Charles. Harry chose to take Di’s sapphire engagement ring as a memento of his mother; William took the Cartier watch she used to teach him how to tell time. Now, the ring graces the finger of Prince William’s fiancee (and the soon-to-be Princess of Wales).

The True Blood co-stars - who announced their engagement last year - got married on Saturday evening in California. According to Us Weekly, the couple - who have been dating since filming the pilot episode of the vampire drama in 2007 - exchanged vows beneath a tent at a private residence across the street from the beach in Malibu.
Guests included actor Elijah Wood and the pair’s fellow True Blood co-star Carrie Preston along with her husband, Lost actor Michael Emerson. No further details were available at the time of writing.
British star Stephen - who portrays vampire Bill Compton to Anna’s Sookie Stackhouse - recently admitted he decided to propose to the TV beauty earlier this month because it would be “ridiculous” to keep calling her his girlfriend. Stephen - who has two children, Billy, 10, and Lilac, eight, from previous relationships, but has never been married before - said, “It got to the point where I just was thinking, ‘You are calling somebody who you intend to stay with for the rest of your life your girlfriend.”

Rachel, 28, and Hayden, 29, first met on the set of the movie Jumper and started dating in 2007. They later became engaged in February 2009.
Friends claim distance was the main problem as Rachel lives in Los Angeles, while Hayden is based in his home country of Canada. “It just wasn’t working out, ” one pal said. “Rachel is now focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward.”
In June, the couple announced they were “taking a break” as they wanted to reassess their feelings for one another. “They are taking about a month off and will then revisit their relationship to decide if they should stay together,” a source said at the time.

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin’s road to marriage may have hit a road bump…a growing road bump.
Although Bristol Palin publicly declared that she would not have sex (again) until she was married, it appears Johnston - who not so modestly posed for Playgirl - may not have made that same commitment.
According to a new report in the National Enquirer, Levi - already a father to 18-month-old Tripp - may have impregnated an ex-girlfriend during the time he and Bristol were broken up. It’s also possible he’s not the father of Lanesia Garcia’s baby at all.
