Ebanks, 24, said yes. Cannon then presented her with a 12-carat diamond ring.

The couple met at a Super Bowl party in Miami in February.

In the past, the 26-year-old rapper, comedian, actor and host of MTV's "Wild 'N Out" has been romantically linked with socialite Kim Kardashian and singer-actress Christina Milian.

Cannon's screen roles include "Drumline."
