LeToya Luckett is engaged! The former Destiny’s Child singer has confirmed on social media that her now-fiancé, Dallas entrepreneur Tommicus Walker, proposed—and she said yes!
Here’s how it happened: Luckett planned a surprise birthday party for Walker, inviting friends and family to celebrate with the pair. Walker used this as the perfect opportunity to propose to Luckett, with their closest loved ones (including his young daughter!) watching and recording.
Bryon Javar, celebrity stylist and Luckett’s close friend, broke the news on Instagram with a screenshot from an apparent FaceTime with the singer, captioned, “Omg my sister is engaged!!!”
Luckett followed Javar’s post with a selfie, showing off her new rock, with the caption “I said, ‘Yes yeeeesssss’ on his burfday!” She included a string of hashtags, including #GodShowedOut and #LoveWins, confirming her excitement about the big news.
There’s video, too! Luckett’s brother, Gavin, shared the couple's proposal video from that night. While Walker’s words to his future bride are muffled because his back is turned, it’s clear from the tears in Luckett’s eyes that she was moved by what he said before he got down on one knee.
Luckett's engagement comes just a year after she finalized her split from ex-husband Rob Hillman. The two wed in January 2016, only to break up less than three months later. While she kept the divorce plans private until they were nearly complete, she discussed it earlier this year during an interview with The Breakfast Club. “Anytime you open up and allow yourself to love and love hard, that’s the risk you take of it possibly not working out,” she told hosts. “And although we really did love and care for each other, it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.”
Just a few months after she shared those thoughts, it looks like she’s found someone she loves and cares for, and we hope it turns out just right this time. Congratulations to Luckett and her new fiancé!
