During the season two finale of TV One’s “R&B Divas,” Monifah’s longtime girlfriend, Terez, popped the question.
Huffington Post’s Glennisha Morgan reports that they took a day trip to Terez’s hometown of Chattanooga, Tenn.:
During a visit to the Tennessee Aquarium, Monifah probed Terez about a final answer to moving to Atlanta with her. Shockingly, Terez told Monifah she would not move to Atlanta as her woman. A baffled Monifah paused and stared at Terez, before she pulled out a black box.
Unfortunately, Monifah’s daughter didn’t take the news too well. The 21-year-old has made it clear that her mother being gay is against her religious beliefs.
“This is a genuine and pure love,” Monifah explained after the big announcement. She then expressed her hope that her daughter will at least celebrate with the pair outside of the wedding ceremony.
Watch the beautiful proposal at the 13:10 mark.
