He liked it so he put a 5-carat ring on it!

First spotted while Steven Tyler and Erin Brady were on a Christmas holiday, the brilliant-cut diamond Brady sported on her ring finger is indeed an actual engagement ring, according to designer Loree Rodkin.

She told Us Weekly in an exclusive statement, "Having made Steven's jewelry for so many of the past years it was an honor to be part of his future ... with all my love to Steven and Erin." 

Tyler has yet to issue his own statement, but a source close to the family reportedly told TMZ that things are chilly between Brady and the Tyler family. "She's been mean to the family," the source said.
