Knight broke the happy news to Jenny McCarthy – who’s married to NKTB’s Donnie Wahlberg – on her radio show on Tuesday.

“We were in Africa, our parents were there, our moms were there and I just figured this was the time to pop the question,” the 47-year-old singer said. “We’ve always considered ourselves a married couple.”

The singer says he had been planning the proposal weeks before the couple set out for their African safari.  “We were on the Zambezi river, it’s right above Victoria Falls. We took a nighttime raft dinner, just the four of us out on the river. There was a hippopotamus in the background,” he says. “It was a super moon. It was just absolutely beautiful, it was so romantic.”

Creating more beautiful memories together!

The couple started dating way back in 2008 and although they’re not yet married they have taken each others names on social media.

“We were rehearsing the day I met him,” Knight says about first meeting Rodriguez. “He’s a trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp, so I would be with the band all day, then the only time I got to see him was to go take his class. I’d take his class then we’d go for dinner afterwards.”

Knight added, “He’s been around from the beginning and seen NKOTB’s comeback morph into what it is today.”

To add to the exciting engagement announcement is news that New Kids On The Block will be be touring the US this summer with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.
