Naturi Naughton's Fiance' Proposed To Both Her And Her Daughter, And Our Hearts Can’t Take It

He gave each of them a ring to signify the commitment to both of them.

Celebrity News

Over the holiday break, we were all ecstatic to learn that our girl, Naturi Naughton had become engaged. And since the big day, she has been sharing the beautiful details that we can't get enough of.

Our favorite part? A few days before Christmas Day, she was told that she would be attending a photoshoot for family holiday pictures. Turns out, a proposal was on the horizon...for both her and her daughter, Zuri.

Naughton welcomed Zuri in July 2017 and split with her ex shortly after her arrival. Naughton has since been balancing motherhood, and her booming acting career (Tasha St. Patrick in the hit Starz series Power and its spinoff Power Book II: Ghost), on her own.

That is until she was introduced to her now fiance', Mr. Bae (she's not ready to share his identity yet).

On How They Met:

"Omari Hardwick and I were recording a song together and Omari was like, 'oh you gotta meet my people'. On that night, I met this kind, handsome, southern gentleman who would love me like I've never been loved. From that point on, we talked every day, quietly dated and fell in love. Thank you, TV hubby, for introducing me to my future hubby!"

Ghost, of all people, introduced her to her soulmate, y'all. Whew!

On How He Proposed:

"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!
"He promised to take care of me and my daughter, 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."

She continued:

"Zuri admired her ring, then said, 'Oh For me?' She was so happy. It makes me happy that they have a great bond as well. Any man that I would choose would have to know that Zuri and I are a package deal!"

On How Far She's Come:

Naughton may be taking in all the moments and not rushing to the altar anytime soon, but that certainly doesn't mean she doesn't know how far she's come. She once told MadameNoire:

"Being a single mother doesn't have to mean you're unhappy: I bought my first home a few years ago, I star on 'Power' and I'm dating again. I didn't get married, and I don't have a fairy-tale love story (yet), but I'm stronger than ever and having fun too."

It's the optimism and confidence for all the possibilities, for me.

Congratulations, Naturi and Zuri!

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
