Brandy has been raving about her guy Ryan Press ever since the two went public in 2011. So while her fans were probably expecting an engagement, Brandy says she wasn’t expecting him to pop the big question to her last week.
“It was a spontaneous thing for my fiance,” Brandy tells People. “He just felt it.”
In the days after Christmas, the newly engaged pair vacationed in Hawaii and Brandy flashed her rock to the camera in a poolside picture. “He worked really hard on the ring. I’m not a big diamond girl, but I really love this diamond he did,” Brandy tells People. “It just represents how he feels about me, and I’m really blessed to have someone like him in my life. He’s truly a gift.”
For the second year in a row, Brandy rang in the New Year in Las Vegas. On Wednesday she shared a photo of herself and Ryan as they traveled back to California.
