Atlanta rapper Future took a break from his "Would You Like A Tour?" run with Young Money's Drake this week to discuss winning over hip-hop and R&B fans alike by proposing to fellow musician Ciara.
Although they have shared an intimate public relationship for nearly a year, Future said even CiCi was surprised at his proposal.
"I feel different but it's great," Future told MTV News of being engaged. "It's a great situation and I'm happy about it. I'm excited about it and I know she's super happy. I just feel good to be able to make someone happy." The 29-year-old popped the question during Ciara's birthday weekend and explained that it had been a long time in the making, but she still didn't see it coming. "She was definitely surprised," he said. "I've been planning it for a minute, I took some time, I really thought about the ring, I was just taking my time with it because I wanted it to be special for her." (MTV)
According to reports, jewelry designer company Avianne & Co's responsible for the 15-carat eye candy.

Future popped the big question and sealed the deal with the ring a few days ago.
R&B singer Ciara is engaged to her rapper beau Future. The couple's publicist has confirmed that the hip-hop star proposed to the Goodies hitmaker over the weekend with a 15-carat diamond ring. The proposal took place in New York as the pair was out celebrating Ciara's 28th birthday. The usually-private star went public with her romance earlier this year, and revealed she was keen to settle down with the rapper. She said, "I'm happy. I'm with somebody that makes me feel very comfortable in this setting. He's my best friend, so we talk about a lot of stuff. At the right time, I'm looking forward to (having a family). (Toronto Sun)
Over the spring, CiCi suggested her past woes in high-profile relationships were a distant memory with Future in her life.
"I'm happy. I'm with somebody that makes me feel very comfortable in this setting," she gushed. The decision to reveal more about her personal life was one that took time. "It's just a whole new thing that's happened within myself internally that's kinda inspired me to do things differently," she said. "I've been able to learn a lot over the past years of my life. I've tried things many different ways. I'm now in a place in my life where I'm so much more comfortable than I've ever been in my skin. I've learned that you gotta live your life for you. People are gonna have something to say no matter which way you do it." (Rap-Up)
