Beyoncé might have another wedding to attend soon. Reports are circulating that her younger sister Solange Knowles might be engaged!

Solange's boyfriend of five years, video director and frequent Beyoncé-collaborator Alan Ferguson, apparently proposed to the singer on Monday, the day before her 28th birthday. Not long after, Solange posted a now-deleted Instagram of her cuddling with Ferguson in the water near a tropical beach with a very telling caption.

"Today couldn't have been more perfect," she wrote. "I couldn't have smiled harder. Thank you for all of your lovely and wonderful wishes. They warmed my heart and I simply feel grateful for all of the love."

Could the deleted post mean that she changed her mind and decided to keep the happy news under wraps? Or was it a misunderstanding? She did just finish recording an album, so the post could have been misinterpreted. We're guessing that she unwittingly leaked the news! Her big sister and brother-in-law are huge on privacy, so they may have advised her to keep it hush-hush.

If she's engaged, we have a lot of killer wedding style statements to look forward to — the youngest Knowles sister is consistently stepping out in funky, fresh and fashion-forward looks. So we have no doubt that her wedding dress would be equally cool. Plus, a Solange wedding means we might get to see Beyoncé and pregnant Kelly Rowland as bridesmaids.

We have our fingers crossed that this rumor is true!
