Jay-Z has proposed to long-term love Beyoncé Knowles.
The hip-hop star popped the question during a romantic getaway to Cannes, and the singer-and-actress said yes.
The pair are now planning to marry in Hawaii in the autumn.
Beyoncé said: "I want to get married and really want a family - in a perfect world I'd have two boys and a girl.
"You know someone loves you by the way he treats you and respects you. Me and Jay respect each other."
Jay-Z flew to London last night (03.06.07) to watch Beyoncé perform at Wembley on the latest leg of her UK tour.
The 37-year-old hip-hop mogul even cancelled his own promotional tour of his business empire Roc-A-Fella to surprise his 25-year-old fiancée.
Sources say Jay-Z promised Beyonce "the biggest diamond she can fit on her finger".
A source said: "This will be the hip-hop wedding to end all hip-hop weddings."
