Thanks to the magic of Twitter, I can happily report that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Neil Diamond[/lastfm] is engaged! Just this morning, he tweeted, “Good news coming from sunny LA and you’re the first I want to tell. Katie & I just got engaged and I hope you wish us well.” Congrats, Neil! Katie must be very special to have snagged the heart of the “Solitary Man.”
[photogallerylink id=52264 align=left]It’s a BIG day for Neil, as it was also announced that he’ll be one of five recipients of Kennedy Center Honors this December in Washington DC!
That’s Katie! @NeilDiamond tweeted the picture this morning. He said, “I’d like you to meet Katie. I’m lovestruck. I took this photo in London last month.”
