Mena, 27, was first to spill the news on Saturday while at Atlanta's BET Hip Hop Awards. E! asked her about her "boyfriend, and she corrected reporters, saying, "Uh ...he's actually my fiance!"

Mena reportedly first met Bow Wow when she showed up on his BET show 106 & Park. Upon sharing a kiss on the couch, the two became an item.

Congrats to the newly engaged couple!

In other nuptial news, Disney unveiled a Frozen wedding dress ...but we suspect Mena won't be purchasing this for her big day.
