Nick Young of the Los Angeles Lakers proposed to Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea who he has been dating for a year and a half, as they celebrated Young’s 30th birthday. The rapper, 24, threw a birthday bash for Nick Young but she was the one who got the surprise in the form of a proposal, which included a $500,000 engagement ring. 'Love you @swaggyp1,' she writes, tagging the basketballer who wrote on social media: 'She said yes. It's over man. I'm getting married!'
“Happiest days,” the “Fancy” singer wrote on her Instagram, adding the hashtag #isaidyes, alongside a photo of her Jason of Beverly Hills engagement ring. The ring is 10.43 carats. It boasts an 8.15-carat yellow cushion cut center stone, which is surrounded by 2.28 carats of white diamonds.
“Nick was very involved in designing the ring,” Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills told HollywoodLife.com. “We wanted it to be both a ring of Iggy’s dreams and a ring that fit her personal style. It is always an honor when a client trusts me to help design a ring that symbolizes one of the most important decisions of their life.”
Nick recently hinted at wanting marrying Iggy in the near future. “Of course! Of course! But I can’t give you that surprise. You’re gonna ruin that surprise,” Nick shared to People Magazine.
Iggy’s engagement comes just days after she officially canceled her ‘Great Escape’ tour, which was scheduled to kick off Sept. 18 in San Diego and had already been delayed once, when she pushed back tour dates in March. The rapper initially rescheduled the dates due to “production delays.”
