“Yes! Yes! And Yes!” the mother of two captioned a photo of herself holding her fiancé’s hand, with her engagement ring in clear view. “For humbling my spirit, for restoring my faith in love, for raising the bar, for being all of what a man should be. For each of these and more I SAY YES! Looking forward to forever with you.”

During the first two seasons of “Friends & Family Hustle,” Toya expressed her fear of marrying Rushing after her previous failed marriages to rapper Lil Wayne and music producer Memphitz. In 2006 she divorced Wayne, whom she shares 21-year-old Reginae Carter with, and her marriage to Wright ended in divorce in 2016.

Robert and Toya share 1-year-old daughter Reign Rushing, whom they welcomed in February 2018. Wedding details for their special day have yet to be released.
