The hip-hop celebrity popped the question to Faune Chambers in December

Diddy's pal and former butler, Fonzworth Bentley, has revealed that he has been engaged to actress Faune Chambers.

Bentley, who kept the engagement a secret for months, told Us Magazine while speaking about the upcoming nuptials, "We are so excited! The wedding is pretty soon!"

Bentley proposed to the 33-year-old Curious Case of Benjamin Button star in December 2009, just before New Year's Day. The actress was expecting him to pop the question that Christmas, however, she was shocked as he got down on one knee, presenting a 3-carat diamond ring from NYC's Ozuro Fine Jewelry.

The romantic Bentley then ushered his fiancee to a lunch where both of their parents attended. "We all had lunch and then I walked them all back to show them where I proposed," he stated.

The 36-year-old can most easily be recognized as being the manservant photographed holding Diddy's umbrella, who then became a singer, author, and reality show star.

Bentley's new album, Cool Outrageous Fingerprint, is due to be released this summer. Faune will play the lead in the video for the first single, "Greener," where he spoke highly about his fiancee.

"It's really special to say my fiancee is in the video. I love using that word. You don't; get to do it too long, so it's really special!"
