Brandy Norwood received the gift she’d been waiting for this Christmas: an engagement ring!
“They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right,” an insider told US Weekly.
For months now, Brandy has let it be known that she was expecting boyfriend Ryan Press to propose soon. She told Sister 2 Sister that she had it on good authority that a ring was on its way.
“I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don’t know,” Brandy told S2S in August. “I guess it will happen when it’s the right time.”
Brandy described Ryan as family focused, funny and goal-oriented.
“I just want to be myself, laugh and have a good time [with] someone who is really a great example for my daughter and loves her like she is his own and that’s what I have. So, I’m blessed,” she said.
Brandy’s marriage to Ryan will be her first; although, she did perpetrate a marriage hoax years ago, starring in an MTV series that chronicled her life as a new wife and expectant mother.
“I’m 33. It’s time to be married for real this time,” Brandy told Power 105.1 in October. “It’s a great thing when you’re in love with someone and you’re connected. You want to share your life with that person.”
