R&B superstar Toni Braxton
has confirmed that she's engaged to rapper Birdman, her boyfriend of almost two years. The happy news was revealed in a promo for the upcoming season of Braxton's reality show, Braxton Family Values. Braxton gleefully tells her family in a teaser for the WE tv series, "I have an announcement to make. I'm engaged!" The video also gave us a glimpse at the reality star's gorgeous and very large engagement ring.
Braxton, 50, has been seen wearing the ring for several weeks, which stirred up rumors of an engagement, but that wasn't the first time wedding buzz plagued the duo. There were also rumblings that the couple had married in October 2017, but the "Un-break My Heart" singer's rep denied those claims in a statement at the time. The RnB singer was previously married to Keri Lewis for 12 years. They had two sons before splitting in 2013.
Braxton and the Cash Money Records cofounder, 49, first showed off their love at the BET Awards in June 2016, but they've actually known each other since collaborating on the 1992 song "Baby You Can Do It." Toni's mother, Evelyn Braxton, has praised the Cash Money Records co-founder in the past.
