Guess misery really does love company?

Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, confirms that she is engaged to Nick Gordon, her "adopted" brother. The 19-year-old broke the news to her shocked-looking family in a sneak preview of their upcoming Lifetime reality show, The Houstons: On Our Own.

Bobbi Kristina and Gordon have been raised like brother and sister since Houston informally adopted him when he was just 12 years old. The pair, who have "always been close," according to a source for Us Weekly, have been rumored to be living as a couple since Houston passed away in February. They were involved in a nasty car accident last month, allegedly following a fight.

Bobbi K was spotted rocking a huge diamond ring this past spring, prompting rumors that she and Gordon were engaged. Through a rep, the couple vehemently denied the rumors, until the release of the clip, which shows Bobbi nervously telling her family, "we're engaged!"

Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, tied the knot himself this past June when he married his manager, Alicia Etheridge, in Hawaii. Bobbi Kristina was not present at the nuptials, and is said to be estranged from her father. The drama continued when Etheridge suffered a seizure reportedly brought on by diabetes in September, and was treated at a Florida hospital.
