Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose have been public about their romance since the pair first began dating, and this week the Pittsburgh rapper put a ring on it. Wiz proposed to Amber Rose and the couple confirmed the engagement with a photo of Amber’s new ring and a series of Tweets. “She Said Yes!!!” Wiz wrote on Twitter, sharing a picture of Amber sporting an oval-cut diamond ring.
“He made me the Happiest Woman in the World!!!!” Rose followed up on Twitter with the same picture attached to her message. “We Love all u Rosebuds, Rosestuds & Taylors so much!”
Amber and Wiz began dating early last year, and they appeared together on an episode of “RapFix Live” in March. The media coverage surrounding the couple hasn’t always been so rosy, especially when the topic of Rose’s ex-beau Kanye West has come up, but through it all, their relationship has continually flourished.
The couple has been very vocal about their plans for marriage in the past year. “We discuss it all the time; like he said, we’re very much in love,” Rose told MTV News while standing next to Wiz on the VMA Pre-Show black carpet. “But, ya know, we’re just going to take our time and just enjoy each other right now. We’re both really busy and we work really hard and when the time comes, it’s gonna come.”
“Oh yeah, absolutely, man; it’s gonna happen,” Wiz added. “Like we said, we’re just gonna do what’s natural and not let any pressure [get to us], because even [with] the word of it happening, people are like, ‘You guys need to get married now,’ ” Khalifa explained. “It’s gonna happen; my baby knows I love her. I’m committed and she’s committed, so we’re just gonna make it happen.”
In September, a photo of Wiz in a black tuxedo and Amber in a white gown hit the Web. Rumors began to fly that the two had secretly tied the knot in Las Vegas, but MTV News later learned that the couple was merely celebrating Khalifa’s birthday.
