After nearly three years of proper courtship (and their own occasional scoffing that they would ever need to get married), Josh Duhamel and Fergie are now engaged, the Las Vegas star's rep confirms for TVGuide.com. (So much for Stacy Ann Ferguson being "klumsy" in love!)

Earlier this year, Josh told me that despite Fergie's fierce on-stage personas as both the female Pea and her solo act, people would "probably" be surprised by his lady love's real self. "She's definitely not what you would expect," he shared. And while he may be deliriously drunk on Fergie's sung-about trunk, don't ever go searching for him in the background of her music videos. "No, no," he maintained, "there will be no rubbing of the ass."
