Love is in the air! Brandy is now engaged to her music executive beau Ryan Press, though the proposal was one she saw coming.
“I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don’t know,” Brandy told Sister2Sister magazine in August. “I’m going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be … I guess it will happen when it’s the right time.”
It turns out Christmas was the right time, as Press popped the question when the holiday season was in full swing. A source close to the couple tells Us Weekly that “they are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right.”
This is Brandy’s first marriage, though she has a 10-year-old daughter, Sy’rai, with her ex-boyfriend Robert Smith.
“[Press] just loves me for who I am,” Brandy told Us prior to the engagement. “I don’t have to camouflage anything for him or put on a mask. I can completely be myself and he loves me so much and I love him just the way he is, too.”
