We reported yesterday that Russell Brand had popped the question to Katy Perry while on vacay in India, and now it's being confirmed by the man himself.

"It's true," Russell texted The Sun last night.

Russ offered Katy the ring during an elaborate Indian ceremony on New Year's Eve, where wearing traditional Indian clothing, their relationship was blessed by a "love guru."

The couple's currently celebrating their engagement in Thailand.



Katy dishes to Glamour mag about her new fiance Russell Brand, exclaiming that he's not just a partner, but also "a teammate!"

Says Katy: "I’m not going to play by any rules, I’m just going to go with my heart. Why wait? I just wrote a song [that goes], 'They say it’s hard to meet your match, gotta find my other half so we can make a perfect shape."

How adorbs!

She also reveals that she met Russell while filming a cameo in his latest flick, Get Him to the Greek and the scene called for a makeout sesh. Afterwards, "I was hopping like a bunny," Katy says!
