Toni Braxton Opens Up About How She Fell In Love With Her Fiancé Birdman & Details About Their Upcoming Nuptials

Toni Braxton is a blushing bride-to-be. And she is telling the world all about how she fell for her fiancé, Birdman.

(Toni and the music mogul have been buddies for years and years, but their friendship reportedly shifted into a romantic dynamic back in 2016. )

“He and I have been friends for a long time, for like 17 years and it just grew from friendship to more than that,” Toni spilled to ET’s Courtney Tezeno at the premiere of “The Forgiven”, at the Directors Guild of America in LA on Wednesday, March 7th.

“So you gotta keep your friends close,” she added. “You never know what can happen.”

She is making big plans for the wedding too!

"The cake is important… and the dress," she shared.

Duh and duh! But can we talk pre-nup details? Nope? Okay, fine.


"I’m particular about the dress… I have to find something that’s appropriate but sexy at the same time."

Toni also wants Drake (he's signed to Birdman’s Cash Money record label) to put on a little show at the matrimonial bash. 


She told Sunday Mirror as much, declaring, "I think Drake is brilliant, I would love him to perform, and he’s on Cash Money so we’ll see."



The 50-year-old teased this life revelation on a preview clip for her reality show, "Braxton Family Values."

"I have an announcement to make. I'm engaged!"

The songstress also flaunted her humungous bauble around to her family. We don’t blame her—we would be throwing it into the eye-line of every single person we came across!

The Braxton bunch is shown dancing around in excitement. Aw.

Watch the clip below:


The duo previously collaborated together on "Give It Back" (with his group Big Tymerz) and then released "Baby You Can Do It" in 2002. Toni once released a song titled "Heart Away", which featured her boo.

An insider spilled the scoop on this pair a while back, saying, "They don’t want anyone to know yet. They’re trying to keep it secret, just like their relationship. They tried for as long as they could to deny that they were actually together. They’re so in love with each other. I’m surprised that they even waited this long to do it."

Long ago, Toni told her sisters, "This one guy, he was a really nice guy. But I can’t say."
