From #MCM and #WCW's to fiance's, ladies and gentlement, meet the future Youngs!
After a year and a half of dating, Nick Young and Iggy Azalea are officially engaged! The big proposal all went down on Nick's 30th birthday yesterday, June 1, which he celebrated alongside his lovely lady and a group of close friends with trip to the carnival- which is no surprise considering that the couple's first date was at the 'Target' supermarket back in 2013 after the two got acquainted via Twitter. Big kids!
The big moment, captured by friend and publicist Ernest Dukes, all went down when Nick aka 'Swaggy P' got on one knee in front of The Real's Jeannie Mai and Gilbert Arenas, and asked his Aussie-hottie, 'Would you marry me?' to which she of course replied- "Yes!" The 24 year old I-G-G-Y could hardly contain her excitement as she scooped up the massive rock before her boo could even place it on her finger. Aww!
And as for the deets on the rock- according to Nick's jeweler, the baller put a lot of thought into getting only the best for the future Mrs. Young. He dropped about a whopping $500,000 on the 8.15 carat yellow diamond, which also features 2.28 of white diamonds set into the 18 karat white gold. "Fancy!"
Fans of the couple may have seen this coming already. Just this past Sunday, the day before popping the big question, the NBA star and father of one helped coach a celebrity basketball game at the Equinox gym in West LA. PEOPLE magazine was on deck and, because his girl's birthday is also the same week (June 7), decided to ask Nick what his plans were:
"Her birthday is coming up. I'm planning trips and everything. It's going to be a big surprise. I can't tell you anything. You'll see next week. We're doing everything."
And when asked about a wedding in the future:
"Of course! Of course! But I can't give you that surprise. You're gonna ruin that surprise."
Looks like he wasn't playing- less than 24 hours from being off court, he was down on bended knee.
And it wasn't even her birthday (yet)...
As for Iggy, hours before the proposal she wrote on social media:
Happy 30th to my now old man nick!
I'll save the really mushy stuff for inside your birthday card that way you can blackmail me with it later.
For now it's just a simple:
I looooove you, I'd do anything for you.
Glad you exist etc etc.
If we get old together don't die before me. (Jk)
Congrats again to Nick Young and Amethyst Amelia Kelly!
