”I don’t wanna be your friend. I wanna be your husband. I’m here forever because I don’t see my life without you. And I love you, Tamar. Tamar, will you marry me?” JR asked, to which the R&B singer happily replied “Yes!” She admitted that she’s “crazy” about JR and can’t believe she found what she was looking for.
The “Braxton Family Values” star admits that she joined the show to find Mr. Right, and she was pleasantly surprised by the experience. It gave her the opportunity for self-reflection, self-realization, and personal and emotional growth.
We first saw Tamar and JR in color coordinated outfits last August, when they walked into Sovereign Sweets together to celebrate his 46th birthday. We now know Tamar, 45, planned the birthday bash for her beau:
After their coupledom debut, it was rumored they were engaged.
Folks were quick to dig up shady receipts on JR, which you can find out HERE.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Speaking of happy couples…

Evelyn Lozada, the former “Basketball Wives” star, is also engaged! The 47-year-old reality star is now engaged to Lavon Lewis, a marketing firm co-founder whom she met on Peacock’s “Queens Court.”
According to PEOPLE, Lavon, 42, popped the question on Evelyn’s birthday back in December. The proposal was held at a small gathering with friends and family in Los Angeles. The marketing firm co-founder had a few tricks up his sleeve to surprise the reality star, who is known for being difficult to surprise. He told her to pack her bags, and they’re going somewhere. She was blindfolded until she got to the front door. Once she walked in, she saw about 20 close friends and family, and big “marry me” letters, roses on the ground, and more.
The proposal also featured a custom cake with butterflies, one side saying “Happy Birthday,” while the other side read, “She said, ‘Yes.'” Evelyn, who was previously married to NFL player Chad “Ochocino” Johnson in 2012, did not expect the proposal, even though she and Lavon talked about tying the knot before. In fact, only Evelyn’s manager and two of Lavon’s friends knew that he planned to pop the question that day.
”I didn’t know that he was going to propose that day,” she said. “I didn’t know what I was walking into. He was being very sneaky, and in all honesty, I was a little irritated because I’m such an alpha female, and I’m kind of like, why do I have to pack? Why do I have to do this? It was really, really difficult for me to just let go and allow him to do his thing.”
Despite wanting to be in the know, Ev loved the Twila True ring that Lewis picked out.
“It was the perfect size and shape,” said Evelyn, who partnered with Twila True on her BX Glow jewelry line. “I’ve never had that stone, so he did a really, really good job. But I’m not surprised. Lavon is a creative mind and he doesn’t forget anything.”
Once Lavon’s 13-year-old son Jordan heads to high school, he plans to relocate so he and Evelyn can bring their family under the same roof. Jordan also got to meet Evelyn’s 8-year-old son, Leo, over the holidays, and they hit it off instantly, like two peas in a pod.
Lavon also calls Lozada “the most amazing woman I’ve met” — and he didn’t even believe he’d find love on the show.
“Before the show started, I told my friends that I don’t believe in the process,” he admitted. “I came on the show thinking, ‘They called me, this is a new adventure. It’ll be fun. I’m a pretty private, introverted person, but why not do something new? You can’t find love in this type of process? It’s impossible?'”
Never say never.
Now, Evelyn and Lavon look forward to getting married this coming winter.
”I’ve never experienced this energy,” she tells PEOPLE. “In hindsight, it’s clear, I had the wrong person in my life.”
