Angela Simmons is engaged! The 28-year old Growing Up Hip Hop star shared the news with loyal fans via Instagram Tuesday, April 26. She posted a video donning a substantial diamond engagement ring, and her excitement came through in the caption.

“YES!! I couldn’t be more excited,” the television star/fashion designer shared. This is only something I could of only dreamed of. I’m over the moon and feeling so blessed to be able to share my life with the one I truly love. Everything happened in the most perfect way.”

Although Simmons hinted at a romantic proposal, she’s remaining mum about the details. Perhaps the most head-scratching mystery of all is who the soon-to-be bride is engaged to. Amidst plenty of selfies, yoga poses, and images of delicious food, Simmons posted a photo of herself with a mystery man a few weeks back. With the beach in the background, she hopped on his back for an impromptu piggy-back ride. “My one and only #MCE,” she captioned the candid shot, referring to her everyday man crush. “The true definition of MCE.. One who truly has your back. #TrueLove #Thankful.”

And Simmons’ mystery fiance isn’t the only one who has the newly engaged star’s back; her father, Rev Run of the hip hop group Run-D.M.C, wasted no time sharing his daughter’s Instagram announcement. “Congrats Angela!!!” he posted shortly after Simmons shared the good news. “Daddy loves you!!! I’m so happy for you!!”

The reverend may have had his future son-in-law in mind when he followed up his congratulatory message to his daughter with a sweet video. He compiled photos of himself with his wife Justine, set to John Legend’s “All of Me.” Simmons’ proud father included a heartfelt caption offering advice for men in love. Could his message be used as marriage advice for the soon-to-be groom? His timing is impeccable!

We’re fairly sure a follow-up announcement from Simmons is in the not-so-distant future. She’s clearly in love; how could the bride-to-be not want to shout it from the rooftops?
