Singer, actress, mother and soon to be wife Naturi Naughton is dropping exclusive gems following her magical holiday engagement!
Though the mystery man’s identify is being kept under wraps, Naturi has revealed within a one on one interview with Essence that she met her Prince Charming through her television hubby and #Power co-star Omari Hardwick .
“I never imagined that one random night in NY would change my life so much. I had no idea I was about to meet the best teammate ever. Omari Hardwick and I were recording a song together and Omari was like, ‘oh you gotta meet my people’. On that night, I met this kind, handsome, southern gentleman who would love me like I’ve never been loved,” says Naturi.
“From that point on, we talked every day, quietly dated and fell in love. Thank you, TV hubby, for introducing me to my future hubby!”
She goes on to speak of the details of the surprise holiday photo shoot turned engagement announcement, “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 We are all just taking pictures as normal, then the music changes to a song called ‘Looking For Love’ by Mul-Ty. 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!”
Naturi reveals that her fiancé also gave her three year old daughter a ring also, “He promised to take care of me and my daughter. 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…It makes me happy that they have a great bond as well. Any man that I would choose would have to know that Zuri and I are a package deal.”
