R&B crooner Miguel and his girlfriend of more than 12 years, Nazanin Mandi, are engaged.
After posting a photo on Instagram flaunting a huge rock, rumors swirled that the singer popped the question while the two were on vacation.
During an interview with Hot 97 last May, Miguel explained that marriage wasn’t something he wanted to just “throw” around, US Weekly notes.
“I think it’s more about working. The thing is, you got to know who you are as a person, first of all. I think I’ve come so far as a man and I’m just starting to feel solid where I can be like, ‘You know what? I think I can hold this down legitimately.’ I think now people throw things around like marriage,” he explained.
“I just wasn’t raised like that. I just follow my instincts. I think she’s learned that and she’s had to adjust and had to learn and also embrace. And I love her more for that.”
Check out more photos of the two in the early days.
