BBWLA’s Draya Michele is Engaged!
Draya Michele has finally got her ring.
The BBWLA star and on-again,off-again beau, Orlando Scandrick are engaged!
The NFLer popped the question popped Thursday evening.
“He told me to dress casual and we ended up going to where we had our first date,” Michele tells PEOPLE of the special night out at Arclight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks. “He was acting so weird and so nervous. When he walked up to the bar he tripped and fell over some chairs! I was thinking ‘What in the world is wrong with him?’ ”
She continued, “He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn’t help but to laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time.”
So when are the two getting married?
“I’m in no rush,” she says, “It took a lot to get to this point, so I’m going to let him relax for a little while.” And don’t expect the smoldering star to all of a sudden look matronly. “I’m going to soak this time in and have fun!” she says. “I’m technically not married so I don’t have to be boring just yet. I’m looking forward to being a really hot fiancée!”
Scandrick, 28, presented Michele, 30, with a cushion cut diamond weighing in at a little over 6 carats, designed by Jasons of Beverly Hills. “It’s more than beautiful,” says Michele, “more than I expected.”
