Sharing a picture of her Art Deco style engagement ring on Instagram, Michelle wrote: "I had nothing left to wish for". While working together, Branch tells Billboard they "started realizing that we were completely falling in love". The singer shares an 11-year-old daughter with her estranged husband.
Branch was previously married once before, while this will be Carney's third marriage.
Branch also talked about Carney's involvement in "Hopeless Romantic" and said that the album wouldn't have been possible if not for him.
In the interview, Branch opened up about how the drummer "stuck his neck out" for her in bringing Hopeless Romantic to light amid creative differences from her label, Verve Records, who eventually put out the 14-track recording.
While he didn't mention their recent engagement, Carney also shared an adorable shoutout to his now-fiancée wishing her a happy birthday.
"Pat has said, 'I remember seeing you on MTV in the early 2000s and thinking you were really cute, '" Branch added.
The couple met in February 2015 at a Grammys party in Los Angeles.
