Brandy Engaged To Music Executive Ryan Press (REPORT)

Us Weekly reports that 33-year-old actress/R&B singer Brandy Norwood is engaged to music executive Ryan Press.

But the former "Moesha" star wasn't exactly blindsided by the reported proposal.

In August, Norwood told Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don't know...I'm going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be."

This will be the first marriage for the singer, although she previously claimed she was married to Robert Smith -- the father of her child -- because she was concerned about the social perception of having a child out of wedlock. In 2008, Norwood came clean about the fact that the pair never formally tied the knot.

In the October issue of VIBE Vixen magazine, the singer even admitted that she thought about giving up on love for good until she met her current fiancé.

"[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."
