American singer and actress, Naturi Naughton has announced her engagement to a mystery man as the new year kicks off.
The star actress in ‘the power’ reportedly got engaged two days before Christmas and shared the news with her fans on Friday night, January 1.
Flaunting her engagement ring and sharing a glimpse of her fiance, she wrote in her caption: ‘Yup! I get to marry my best friend!
Sharing her love story and engagement photos with ESSENCE, Naughton said she thought she and her daughter Zuri, 3, were showing up for a princess-themed photo shoot arranged by her man but never knew he had a bigger plan.
“This amazing man of mine planned this whole photoshoot, complete with my glam team and stylist might I add, for me and my daughter with matching princess dresses. All I had to do was show up!” Then something unexpected happened. “We are all just taking pictures as normal, then the music changes to a song called ‘Looking For Love’ by Mul-Ty,” Naughton shared. “Out of nowhere I see Mickey, Minnie, and the whole Disney crew walk in, and then I see my parents and one of my best friends walk in behind them—all wearing their masks. I was in shock! When I turned around, my now fiancé was down on one knee! Ahhhhh!”
“He promised to take care of me and my daughter,” said Naughton. “Then he asked would I ‘do life with him forever’ and I said, ‘YES!’ The most beautiful part of the proposal is that he gave Zuri a ring too, with her birthstone (Ruby) in it. My fiancé said that his commitment to me is also a lifetime commitment to her. Zuri admired her ring, then said, ‘Oh For me?’ She was so happy.
