nickvanessaengaged.jpg Well it's about time! Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are engaged, reps for both stars have confirmed.

The couple gave the following statement to Us mag: "We're excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together." A source close to the couple added, "They're so happy, doing great. Thrilled about it."

The two have been together 2006, and Lachey was previously married to Jessica Simpson. Simpson and her current beau Eric Johnson recently had an awkward run-in with Lachey and Minnillo at the Red O in Los Angeles, and a source told Us that when Jessica noticed her ex-husband and Vanessa at the restaurant she muttered, "I hope Vanessa likes her clothes because I bought them for her, since Nick took all my money."

I guess she's not getting a wedding invite!
