AceShowbiz - %cKid Rock% is officially engaged! He recently proposed to his girlfriend Audrey Berry, presenting her with a large oval diamond ring. The two have been dating quietly for nearly a decade, keeping their romance out of the public eye.
In some photos obtained by TMZ, Berry was seen wearing a huge diamond ring on her left hand during a cruise trip a few weeks earlier. She was captured staring at her ring while smiling, obviously giddy and happy.
The "Only God Knows Why" hitmaker was previously married to %cPamela Anderson% in 2006. They first met in 2001 at VH1 tribute to %cAretha Franklin%. They were reportedly engaged in 2002, but called it off. Four years later, they got married after Anderson got pregnant. However, she miscarried while filming "Blonde and Blonder". Anderson eventually filed for divorce in 2007, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause. Their marriage was heavily publicized by the media.
However, when it comes to his "first love," Rock said that it would always be music. "Several times in my life when I've been very down, very hurt, I've always gone back to my first love: music. It's always worked out pretty well," he said during his appearance on "The Big Interview with Dan Rather" back in February. "And it's another cliche that I believe wholeheartedly: When you're in a terrible space or your heart hurts, for whatever reason, you write good songs, as terrible as that is."
The "Cowboy" singer also talked about his early days, stating that those experiences had made a huge impact on his life. "It was rebellious, and fun, and great, and I was learning a lot that I didn't even realize at the time," Rock claimed. "Everything that I had [been] soaking in taught me how to be a more worldly person in a lot of ways, just to be able to see a lot of different sides of things and be able to judge people, judge cultures, judge things, and be a little more open-minded about it."
