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!

Can we talk about how Megan Thee Stallion is lowkey an inspirational speaker? I mean seriously, have you ever been feeling down on yourself and then "Girls in the Hood" starts playing? It's like, OK girl, get it together, you're a Queen. From beats and bars to catchy lyrics, she's gonna deliver. But musical talent isn't the only thing that deserves acknowledgment. Sis is also about her bag. The "Savage" rapper has collaborations with multiple brands like Cash App, Revel, and recently announced, Nike.

Like many, I was introduced to Tiffany Haddish when I went to see the hilarious film Girls Trip. I came into the theatre expecting to chuckle a bit and just enjoy a movie night. But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.
