Original story:

Elle Varner's holidays will have an extra special meaning for years to come. The Grammy-nominated singer posted a photo to Twitter on Christmas Day, showcasing a diamond ring nestled on the ring finger of her left hand. So is the chanteuse engaged?

"Well this is unexpected!" the 25-year-old wrote as the caption of her flaunting the rock. Once she debuted the photo on the social networking site, Varner's mentions were flooded with congratulations from fans -- she has yet to officially confirm the news. Some asked who popped the question, but the 'Refill' songstress has remained quiet since expressing her excitement with her Twitter following.


Elle Varner

The RCA Records signee has kept her private life just that since hitting the spotlight -- she never shows up on tabloid covers or gossip blogs. For now, her loyal supporters will have to guess who her Mr. Right is.

This year has proven to be a successful one for the songbird, born Gabrielle Serene Varner. In addition to releasing her debut LP, 'Perfectly Imperfect,' in August, she received a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best R&B Song for 'Refill,' off the effort. She competes against Miguel ('Adorn'), Trey Songz ('Heart Attack'), Tamia ('Beautiful Surprise') and Anthony Hamilton (Pray for Me') in the category.
