Birdman and Toni Braxton ready to tie the knot
Toni Braxton has finally confirmed her engagement to rapper Birdman during a preview for her reality TV show, Braxton Family Values, on Saturday (Feb.17).
So months after Braxton’s sister Tamar sparked rumors of the couple eloping, the artists are reportedly ready to tie the knot.
The 50-year-old singer announced she’s engaged and showed off a new ring to her family. ‘I have an announcement to make: I’m engaged!’ she said.
Braxton and Birdman have been romantically linked since early 2016 but have often been coy about discussing their relationship. They made their first public appearance as a couple in June 2016 at the BET Awards.
Toni’s mother, Evelyn Braxton, has praised the Cash Money Records co-founder in the past: “I think he is a nice man,” she said in a radio interview in 2016.
“I don’t care what others say about him. He is a nice man. He is full of respect…Ever since I’ve been knowing that man, he’s been phenomenal,” she concluded.
The “Un-break My Heart” singer was previously married to Keri Lewis for 12 years. They had two sons before splitting in 2013.
