Babyface announces engagement
R&B icon Babyface and his dancer girlfriend Nicole Patenburg have become engaged after seven years of dating.
The multi Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and producer broke the news to his friend Toni Braxton during an interview to promote their new duets album, "Love, Marriage & Divorce" on BET.com.
During the chat, Braxton asked her longtime collaborator, "Would you ever consider getting married again," to which Babyface replied, "I've already considered it. I'm engaged, so yes."

Braxton responded, "You're engaged? I think your fans are gonna be a little disappointed, but equally happy for you."
Babyface, whose real name is Kenneth Edmonds, divorced his first wife Tracey -- the mother of his two sons -- in 2005 after 13 years of marriage.
