Kelly Rowland has opened up about her engagement to manager Tim Witherspoon and has admitted that she wants a small and simple wedding.

The R&B songstress appeared on US talk show The View this week and was probed about her current relationship, which she managed to keep secret until last year when Tim finally proposed.

Speaking about how the twosome first got together, she explained: "He's such a sweetheart. We have a mutual friend and he always told this friend 'That's my dream girl, I'm going to get with her' and he did."

Kelly, 33, then revealed that instead of going all out with an extravagant proposal, Tim popped the question via Skype while she was abroad working.

"He actually asked me over Skype," the singer said. "I was in Bulgaria or somewhere and he just said 'I just want to be with you' and I was like 'That sounds good to me, yeah.'"

The engagement was first reported last November, when Kelly was spotted wearing a suspicious looking diamond ring in an Instagram video.

The happy news was soon confirmed, but the couple still haven't given too many details away and Kelly even hid her rock while out and about a few weeks after her man proposed.

Nevertheless, she didn't seem to mind chatting briefly about her dream wedding on The View this week.

"I want [the wedding] to be small," she said. "I want it to be him and myself and God and just a beautiful setting and just call it a day."

So does that mean no invite for Beyoncé?!

Although she has a few ideas, any concrete plans are yet to be put in place, as Kelly added: "[No specific plans], not yet. We've both been so busy... we have to make the time."
