The 79-year-old rocker is said to have popped the question to his 36-year-old girlfriend who sparked rumours after she was seen wearing a 'promise ring' last month.
Despite denying claims and laughing off the rumours at the time, friends of the couple are now confirming the pair are set to get married.
The confirmation comes just weeks after Melanie and Mick visited New York City.
A source said: "Melanie was at the American Ballet Theatre and she was telling her friends she was engaged to Mick.
"She was very clear her ring is an engagement ring and she is now his fiancée.
"Her family also very much understand them to be engaged and are thrilled."
When previously questioned about the ring on her left hand, Melanie replied: "I have to giggle because did Mick give me the ring? Yes. Is it for that finger? Yes.
"But are we like horny teenagers where we’re giving each other... In my mind, it’s a promise ring.
"We’ll be immature and call it a promise ring."
If the rumours are true, this will be the third marriage for Mick Jagger.
The rocker was wed to Bianca Perez Mora Macias from 1971 to 1978, he was then with supermodel Jerry Hall from 1977 to 1999 – the pair had a marriage ceremony in Bali in 1990 which was later declared void.
The source added: "There are no plans for a wedding but it means a lot to Melanie to be engaged – that is what she has been saying. All her friends are happy for her."
