It didn't take Martha Patterson long to show off her big sparkly engagement ring.

The slim brunette let her followers see the extremely expensive looking piece of jewellery that her new fiance bought her.

Kings Of Leon bassist Jared Followill presented his girlfriend with a 4-carat cushion-cut
diamond on a diamond-covered band which he designed himself.

Despite
having only been dating since January last year, Jared is clearly loved
up with Martha and keen to follow in the foot steps of his band mates.

He's the only member of the band who isn't married but it seems Followill has had enough of the single life.

The 25-year-old musician popped the question to his girlfriend Martha Patterson last month and today confirmed the good news via Twitter.

'It's true! I'm engaged! CANNOT wait to finally lose my virginity,' he posted.

A Kings Of Leon representative also confirmed
the news to Just Jared saying: 'Yes, it’s true! Jared proposed to
Martha on April 11 at his home in Nashville and we’re all excited for
the newly engaged couple.'

His
brother's Caleb and Nathan have both tied the knot after Nathan wed
Jessie Baylin back in November 2009 and Caleb saying I do to Victoria's
Secret model Lily Aldridge more recently in May last year.

The
couple are expecting their first child which is due this Summer and

father to his one-year-old son Knox with wife Johanna Bennett.

However, Jared is no doubt taking one
step at a time and just planning his nuptials to Martha before thinking
about starting a family.

The couple are said to be planning to split their time between their homes in Nashville and Los Angeles.
