Bow Wow has got engaged.

The 27-year-old rapper - whose real name is Shad Moss - popped the question to his fiancée Erica Mena after six months of dating, and she has confirmed the pair are set to marry.

When the 26-year-old beauty was asked whether he was her boyfriend, she replied to E!: ''Uhh ... he's actually my fiancé.''

Bow Wow also confirmed his fiancé has accepted his proposal by taking to his Instagram account to post a picture of her wearing an engagement ring on top of an image of his wrist, which was decorated with a snazzy Rolex watch.

The star left the picture captionless, clearly deciding to let the image do the talking, and the photograph received more than 28,000 likes from the couple's fans.

Bow Wow and Erica are said to have met on the set of US R&B and hip hop music video show '106 & Park', which the rapper hosts.

Erica appears on US reality TV series 'Love and Hip Hop', which previously starred Olivia Longott, who is known for her contributing vocals on 50 Cent's hit 'Candy Shop'.

Bow Wow revealed in July 2011 that he has a called Shai, who is now three years old, while Erica has a son called King from a previous relationship.
