American singer and actress, Naturi Naughton is starting off her 2021 by announcing her engagement to a mystery man.
The Power star, who got engaged two days before Christmas, 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.
