Ben 'Macklemore' Haggerty is engaged.
The 29 year old proposed to his longtime girlfriend Tricia Davis on 21 January (13) and now the couple is set to wed.
The hip-hop star tells People magazine, "I just proposed to my girlfriend, and she said yes. We scaled down a mountain. I got down on one knee and told her how much I loved her. It was really beautiful."
The news caps off an exciting month for the musician - his collaboration with producer Ryan Lewis, Thrift Shop, ended Bruno Mars' six-week reign at the top of the Billboard pop charts last week (begs21Jan13), and Haggerty admits he's beyond shocked by the track's success.
He adds, "I thought it would be a niche song, but now it's No. 1 in the country, which is weird to say out loud!"
