Steven Tyler confirms engagement to girlfriend Erin Brady
Aerosmith rocker and "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler is preparing to walk down the aisle again.
Tyler's rep told the Associated Press on Monday that the 63-year-old singer is indeed engaged to his girlfriend Erin Brady, 38. The two have been dating for five years.
The couple sparked engagement rumors when Brady was seen showing off a diamond ring on her engagement finger while the two were on their Christmas vacation in Maui.
Last January, Tyler and Brady were grilled about the question of marriage by Howard Stern in an interview on the shock jock's Sirius XM radio show.
"Do you want Steven to marry you?" Stern asked, to which Brady replied: "Yes, I do."
When asked what was holding him back, Tyler cited listed his "marriage to the band [Aerosmith]" as a factor.
The singer has been married and divorced twice. The first time was to model Cyrinda Foxe from 1978 to 1987 and his second marriage was to clothing designer Teresa Barrick, which ended in 2006.
Aerosmith is known for hits such as "Dream On," "Don't Want To Miss A Thing" and "Cryin.'"
Tyler is also set to soon resume his duties as one of three judges on the FOX show "American Idol." Earlier this year, he had signed a multi-year contract, reportedly worth $18 million, to return to the show for his second season. The reality show debuted in 2002. Season 11 is set to premiereon January 18.
Tyler made headlines in October when he was hospitalized after suffering a fall in a bathroom in a hotel in Paraguay, which prompted the rocker and "American Idol" judge to undergo emergency dental work and for his band Aerosmith to postpone a planned concert.
