R&B singer Ciara tweeted “If I’m dreaming I don’t want to wake up” after receiving a gorgeous 15-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring from music producer Future on her 28th birthday.
Future, whose real name is Nayvadius Wilburn, surprised the multitalented singer-songwriter-dancer-model-actress over the weekend while the couple celebrated her birthday in New York City. Ciara’s full name is Ciara Princess Harris.
Ciara’s Instagram page features a close-up view of her new ring nestled in a red rose. The large emerald-cut center diamond is flanked by two smaller emerald-cut stones in a stylish variation of the popular “Past, Present and Future” motif. Ciara’s ring adds a flourish of emerald-cut diamonds encircling the entire band. The ring is valued at more than $500,000.
The Grammy-award-winning Ciara was still on floating on air after her NYC birthday bash and surprise proposal. She took to Twitter to get her fans up to speed…
"Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver," she wrote. "If I'm dreaming I Don't Want To Wake Up… Aaaaaahhh!!!:)"
Fans of celebrity engagements may find it an interesting coincidence that on October 21 Ciara’s friend, Kim Kardashian, also received a 15-carat engagement ring on her birthday, the reality star’s 33rd. Hers was a D-flawless cushion-cut diamond mounted on a simple platinum band.
The 29-year-old Future revealed during a radio interview in August that he knew Ciara was “the one” since he saw her for the first time at a video shoot seven years ago. "For it to come around and happen, it was just meant to be," he explained.
The two music artists have been dating for a year and, so far, no wedding date has been set.
