This past Saturday, JoJo, 31, revealed that her now-fiancé, Dexter Darden, popped the big question.
“Forever with YOU? Sign me UP. Celebrating Christmas a whole fiancé!!!” JoJo posted alongside a series of photographs and video from the proposal.
“The most thoughtful, creative, positive, handsome, strong, loving, uplifting human being asked me to marry him. So obviously I said YESSS!!!”
“Thank you for the most epic birthday surprise ever. And for flying out my mom, your mom, and both of our best friends to share in that incredible moment with us,” the “Too Little Too Late” singer added. “You are one of one. LFG @dexterdarden.”
In the comment section, Darden, 30, replied: “Yupppppp???????????????????? thank you for being my forever ????❤️.”
And earlier in the month, Darden gave his fiance a heartfelt Instagram tribute, writing: “Happy Birthday To the Brightest Star In My Universe, The Beat To My Heart, The Woman I prayed for @iamjojo !”
“Jo Thank you for challenging me, Pushing me to be the best Man I can be, and Making me smile when no one else can,” he added. “You are Gift from God to the world, and the best present I’ve ever received. TO THE MOON AND BACK, I got Your back!”
Prior to that, Darden praise JoJo – who he called “The Bravest Artist I know on the planet” — as she dropped her recently released EP, Trying Not to Think About It, in October.
“‘Trying Not To Think About It’ is a project that is Vulnerable, Honest, Motivational, Emotional, and most importantly True! So many people Battle with their Brain, and are afraid to express when they feel like they’re [losing] this battle,” he wrote at the time. “You guys are NOT ALONE! ???? .”
“@iamjojo thank you for not only creating a Piece of Art, but for also encouraging others to talk about the state of their mental health!” Darden added. “You using music as a gateway for healthy Conversation is truly inspiring, and I’m so grateful I got to support you through this thing from beginning to end!!!”
