Aaron Carter Engaged to Playboy Playmate
Come and get it: singer proposed during a public Vegas event
Luckily, she said yes, and the singer-actor is now the proud fiancee to Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche, reports People.
"I don't remember it happening. It was such a blur," says Peniche about Saturday's (Sept. 16) proposal in Las Vegas during the Playboy Comedy Tour at the Palms Casino Resort. "I had no idea he was going to do this, but I'm glad he did."
Peniche, 22, previously dated Carter's older brother Nick, of the Backstreet Boys, but that didn't stop her from taking up with the younger sibling, whom she eventually fell for.
"Aaron is the most genuine person I know," she says. "He's kind, loving, and I love him so much."
The happy couple is planning to get hitched in the next six months.
Peniche was named Miss United States Teen in 2003 but later lost the title after posing nude in Playboy's November 2004 issue.
Carter, 18, will star in E!'s upcoming reality show "House of Carters" premiering in October. In the weekly series, Aaron, big brother Nick, twin sister Angel, and sisters Leslie and Bobbie Jean will move in together and plan their futures.

Aaron Carter is also notorious for allegedly starting the celebrity feud between Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff by dating both of them back in the day.
