*Rumor has it that Beyonce’s sister is no longer a single lady.
According to MediaTakeOut, Solange and her 51-year-old boyfriend of five years, Alan Ferguson, have gotten engaged. The music video producer reportedly popped the question on Monday (June 23).
While Solange has not yet commented on the report, she did take to Instagram to share a pic of them cuddling in the water on a tropical beach.
She wrote: ‘Today couldn’t have been more perfect. I couldn’t have smiled harder. Thank you for all of your lovely and wonderful wishes. They warmed my heart and I simply feel grateful for all of the love.” No word if she was referring to her birthday…or something more.
If Solange is indeed engaged this will be her second marriage. In February 2004, she married her high school sweetheart Daniel Smith at age 17, and a year later gave birth to their son, Daniel Julez J. Smith, Jr. The two divorced in 2007.
“We co-parent really well,” she told Harpers Bazaar about raising her 9-year-old son Julez. “I’m able to say, ‘I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care of the boy?’”
Solange says her relationship with Alan represents stability.
“Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago,” she said. “My love life has been stable for a while. It’s a f–ked-up thing—without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs.”
In 2013, Solange chatted with NecoleBitchie.com and said that she was actually the one to approach him.
“Certainly, in the beginning I was the one who approached him so I have always sort of historically been one of those girls that goes after something that I’m into,” she said. “I’m not very old school and like, I’m gonna wait on you. Wait for you to approach me type of situation. I have a lot of guy-like quintessential relationship qualities that I have had to work on.”
