Congratulations are in order! Emeli Sandé is engaged to Yoana Karemova, her classical pianist girlfriend. The “Next to Me” singer shared the news on September 21, 2022 with a photo on Instagram that showcased her rock. "I said Yes! ❤️❤️" she wrote.
The pop star also shared two more photos, one of her pink oval-shaped ring and one with her fiancée, on her Instagram Story.
The engagement news comes six months after the British singer-songwriter came out as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community. In an interview with Metro, Sandé revealed that she was in a relationship with Karemova and knew for certain that she was the one. “We met through music, and I definitely feel happier than ever,” Sandé said. “It feels great. For me, true love and having love in your life makes everything fit into place.”
That same month, she also shared the first piece of music that she and her girlfriend worked on together by posting a video on social media. “Was such a beautiful experience and privilege to work with her,” the singer said in the caption.
This isn’t the first time that Sandé will tie the knot. In 2012, the singer got married to marine biologist Adam Gouraguine. Two years later, the couple went their separate ways.
We’re so happy Sandé found true love, and we can’t wait to see the wedding!
