According to TMZ, sources close to the couple have confirmed it is an engagement ring. The pair went to Maui for a tropical Christmas day together. It is not clear whether 63-year-old Steven proposed before or after the trip. The couple have been together since 2006.
Before they began dating Erin had already witnessed Steven's famous womanising ways. She used to tour with Aerosmith as their accountant. The 38-year-old had a unique way of dealing with his behaviour. "I saw him, how he behaved. badly, but I just said, 'Hey, listen, if you're going to play, I'm going to play. I just want to make that clear to you.' And he didn't really like it I don't think, when he was on the other side of that scenario,' she told Oprah Winfrey in an interview with both her and Steven.
