Kate Hudson is engaged to Muse singer Matt Bellamy -- and it took a week for anyone to notice!

The star of the upcoming rom-com "Something Borrowed" spilled the beans to Matt Lauer on Wednesday's "Today" show. The host was interviewing her about the film -- co-starring Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski and Colin Egglesfield -- when he noticed the huge rock strategically placed on her hand.

"Could you place your hand in my hand for a second, please? I just want to see something," Lauer said.

Hudson giggled and gave him her hand. A camera close-up revealed a gigantic diamond perched on her ring finger.

"This is new!" Hudson said. "I haven't really announced it, I was waiting for someone to notice."

Apparently Bellamy proposed a week ago. Is it us or has she been flying under the radar? How did the papz miss that?

The actress and the British rocker, both 32, have not yet set a date. But the couple is expecting a baby together. Pregnancy news broke in January, and she is in her third trimester.

Hudson, the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson, was married to Black Crowes rocker Chris Robinson for nearly six years. They divorced in October 2007 and have a 7-year-old son named Ryder.

Here's hoping this musician is a keeper. Congrats, Kate!
