Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor Are Engaged! See the Mom-to-Be's Stunning Ring
The NBA player and the singer, who are expecting their first child, shared news of their engagement on Sunday
Get ready for some bling envy – NBA star Iman Shumpert and singer Teyana Taylor are officially engaged, and she’s got the stunning ring to show it.
The Cleveland Cavaliers player popped the question on Saturday night during their baby shower (they’re expecting their first child together in January) at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Loved every minute of hosting @teyanataylor’ & Iman’s babyshower,” wrote media guru Karen Civil on Instagram. “Its turned into a night celebration of your engagement. Congratulations!”
The next day Taylor, 24, took to Instagram to break the news herself, sharing two closeup shots of her ruby ring.
“I am his Ruby Woo,” the “Google Me” singer wrote. “I’m still speechless. I love you baby.”
A second photo showed the stunning (and massive!) round gemstone. The gold ring includes a diamond-encrusted band.
“Thank You @imanshumpert for putting the color back in my life! I love you so much,” she wrote.
Taylor also quoted romantic song lyrics from singer Monica Brown, writing “Before your love baby I was muddy. So deep with pain till you took it from me/You showered me with a new beginning. Now I’m clean/ Took me by surprise when you ran up on me, I came to life baby in that moment/ You put your hands on my heart and baby now it beats.”
The couple’s daughter, whose name will be Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., is due on Jan. 16, 2016, the 25-year-old athlete revealed on Facebook in September.
“I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with,” he wrote at the time.
