Michelle’s fiancé popped the big question while the two were on vacation in Pebble Beach, California.
Chad presented the singer with a stunning 5-carat rock from L.A. jeweler Denis Mahgerefteh, according to People Magazine.
In an interview with the couple, Chad revealed that he has saved for an engagement ring for his future wife for 11 years!
“On my 30th birthday, everybody came and celebrated me. The next day, I woke up alone,” revealed Chad to People Magazine.
“I was so lonely. I had a little pity party. My personal life was lacking so much, and I was living so single.
“So as a response to that moment, I opened up a ring account, and for 11 years, I put $150 into a ring account,” he shared.
“Every month I’d put money into that account; I would just say, ‘My wife’s coming; this is for my wife.’ I did that for 11 years,” he sweetly recalled.
Michelle reportedly had no idea about the special savings account for Chad’s “future wife.”
“When I had the moment that I knew Michelle was it, I was so excited to get that money and go buy that ring,” he said to People.
“There’s so much in that ring. That’s 11 years of my belief in my wife coming for me,” he stated.
Michelle knew Chad was the one for her after only several short months of dating.
She called the ring “perfect.”
“I saw this ring in February — a friend of mine is a wedding planner from London, and I just saw this ring, and it stood out to me!” the Destiny’s Child singer remarked.
“But I was like, no, whatever he gets me … But then the ring that spoke to me is almost identical to the ring Chad had already purchased and designed! It’s kind of like God was showing me, this is what’s to come,” she stated.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
