Did He Get the Ring in a "Thrift Shop"? Macklemore Engaged to Girlfriend

Courtesy Tricia Davis via InstagramRapper Macklemore of the duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis has something else to celebrate besides the fact that "Thrift Shop" has been #1 for two weeks: he's engaged.

Macklemore, born Ben Haggerty, tells People magazine, "I just proposed to my girlfriend and she said yes.  We scaled a mountain.  I got down on one knee and told her how much I loved her.  It was really beautiful."  The rapper also posted a photo of the impressive engagement ring on Instagram.  "After 7 years... I asked.  And she said yes.  The love of my life," he wrote.

Macklemore's fiancee, Tricia Davis, also posted a photo of her ring on Instagram and wrote, "I said YES!  In the gorgeous Los Padres mountains overlooking this magnificent earth... @macklemore is my best friend and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him."

Marriage is an institution that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis definitely believe in: the duo first gained major national attention with their song "Same Love," which promotes gay marriage.  "It's a personal issue for me," Macklemore tells People.  "I grew up with gay uncles and a [gay] godfather in a very gay neighborhood of Seattle."
