Celebrity Engagement Announcements: Brandy & Ryan Press + Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana
2013 is the year for wedding bells for pop singers Janet Jackson and Brandy.
Brandy recently confirmed her engagement to her long-time boyfriend music executive Ryan Press during her Holiday vacation in Hawaii. 2012 has been a good year for Brandy thanks to the successful release of her album, “Two Eleven” which has the hit single, “Wildest Dreams” a song Sean Garrett wrote inspired by Brandy’s relationship with Ryan. Prior to her engagement, Brandy opened up about almost giving up on love before she met and fell in love with Ryan.
“[I] was looking for love to do something for me; to make me happy, fill a void, make me feel complete, and all of these things don’t come from another, it comes from a love of self,” she told the magazine. “I didn’t understand that at the time… I said a prayer and I waited. And I saw Ryan.” (Vibe Vixen)
