Revealing a huge sparkling diamond the bride-to-be giggles “I’m so excited” while raising her hand to her mouth and letting her enormous rock catch the light.

The “Goodies” and “Love Sex Magic” singer also shared the video on her Instagram account writing, “God is so good! I’m so grateful for you @DangeRusssWilson. You are truly Heaven sent, and I’m looking forward to spending forever with you.”
