In a day when so many people break up via text, is there any wonder that others also propose marriage over Skype?

That's how music manager Tim Witherspoon asked for the hand of the woman of his dreams, his client Kelly Rowland. The singer and 'X Factor' judge was away in Bulgaria for the big moment, she revealed on today's (Dec. 18) episode of the 'Queen Latifah Show.' News leaked out of the couple's engagement last month.

"He asked me first on Skype," Kelly says, "and I was like, 'We're so far away from each other.'"

The distance didn't really seem to matter to either one of them, though. "But it was so late," the former Destiny's Child star recalls. "I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, 'I got my best friend to ride through life with.' He really is my best friend."

At least the proposal was face to face -- and when the couple did see each other in person, Tim put a huuuge diamond ring on it!
