It’s safe to say that singer Cassie is having an epic year. A new relationship, pregnancy, engagement and new music to top it off? Seriously, the blessings just keep rolling in.
The mother-to-be recently got an epic birthday present in the form of a proposal from her boyfriend, celebrity trainer Alex Fine. It all took place on the Compton Cowboy’s ranch, shortly after she debuted her baby bump in a stunning photoshoot. To no surprise, Cassie’s fans and close friends are super happy for her. It’s also sparked a conversation on social media about what can happen when women who choose themselves and go after their hearts’ desires.
As many know, Cassie was in a decade-long relationship with music mogul Diddy. The pair announced their split in October 2018. Shortly after, Cassie began dating Fine (who was reportedly hired by Diddy to train his then-girlfriend.) Less than a year after walking away from a long-term relationship, Cassie’s love life has made a dramatic evolution and the girls are inspired.
Not only are women on social media asking for the prayer a la Ciara, they also feel this is a prime example of what can happen when we walk away from what no longer serves us.
Back in 2016, Cassie spoke with ESSENCE exclusively about the possibility of marrying Diddy. “My parents have been together for 34 years,” she revealed. “I’ve always believed in the sanctity of marriage. Of course, I think every girl wants to get married at some point. I would hope it’s in my near future.”
Although the exes have both moved on, there seems no bad blood between Cassie and Diddy. In fact, the Bad Boy founder congratulated his ex and her new beau on the pregnancy news via social media, writing: “I wish you all nothing but love and happiness. “
Lord, we have seen what you’ve done for others!
