Music exec puts a ring on Brandy's finger

28 December 2012, 12:01

Los Angeles - Brandy Norwood is reportedly engaged to her boyfriend Ryan Press.

The RnB singer was "thrilled" when the music executive - who she has been dating for two years - popped the question this festive season, and the pair can't wait to become husband and wife.

A source told Us Weekly: "They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right."

Pretended to be married

It will be the 33-year-old singer's first real marriage. She pretended to be married to her ex-boyfriend Robert Smith for two years after having daughter Sy'rai, now 10, because she worried people would think she was a bad role model for having a child out of wedlock.

Brandy came clean in 2008, confessing: "I lied because of the fear of what people would think and the pressure to be a good role model. Our relationship was very real - we just weren't legally married."

The feisty singer has often spoken about her desire to tie the knot with Ryan, and hinted in August that she would jump at the chance to accept a proposal from him.

She told Sister2Sister magazine: ''I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don't know. 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."
