Shock rocker Marilyn Manson and his burlesque dancer belle Dita Von Teese are engaged.

Manson, 35, presented his stunning girlfriend of three years with a 1930, seven carat round-cut rock in a new setting of pave diamonds when he popped the big question on 22 March (04).

And the BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE singer chose to leave his love for the unconventional behind when he proposed.

Von Teese's representative explains, "It was very traditional. He got down on one knee."

A pal tells US WEEKLY, "He's so happy. Dita brings out his softer side. It will be a happy marriage, They'll be able to share make-up!"

The loving twosome are expected to walk down the aisle together within a year.
