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 that June.

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!
