Toni Braxton and her fiance Birdman might be getting married sooner than you’d think.
The “Unbreak My Heart” singer confirmed the couple’s engagement in February
, but hadn’t yet landed on a date.
But Birdman appears to have put his foot down.
”He said before the year is out…so a couple of weeks,” Braxton told Wendy Williams
on Tuesday while appearing as a guest on the daytime talk show.
Braxton confirmed that there was once almost a date but she “couldn’t get all of the sisters together” as they struggled with filming their reality show, Braxton Family Values
. And although Birdman is fine with going to the courthouse, Braxton wants a big wedding with her best friend, Jada Pinkett-Smith, as her maid of honor.
“I need the dress,” she said. “I want the dress.”
The 51-year-old singer and the New Orleans rap mogul began dating in 2016
and made their first appearance as a couple at the BET Hip-Hop awards
In an episode of Braxton Family Values
that aired in August, Toni admitted to her mother, Evelyn, that she hadn’t planned anything for her upcoming nuptials.
“There’s not a date. There’s not a color scheme that’s etched in stone; there’s nothing,” she said. “I haven’t picked the dress yet, even, ma.”
Luckily, it sounds like she’s a little further along with the planning these days and will make her future hubby’s deadline!
