The star's new fiancé is named Chad Johnson. The two have actually been dating for the past year, after meeting on a spiritual retreat last year. However, they went public with their relationship in July 2017. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Williams confirmed that Johnson popped the question to her on March 21. The rock is a beauty. It's 5 carats and looks great on the singer's finger!
For those who don't know too much about Johnson, he's a pastor. PEOPLE reports that he graduated from Arizona Christian University in Phoenix with his B.A. in Christian Ministries. "Over the years, Johnson has worked as a pro sports chaplain, leading athletes — including the Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers — and their families in daily devotionals," the publication adds about his athletic side.
Johnson is very excited about walking down the aisle with Williams. Unlike many men, he's heavily involved in their wedding plans. “Chad is very creative. He has great style. I’m excited to have someone who wants to be involved because our wedding planner was telling us sometimes they don’t even meet the groom until the wedding day,” says Williams. “And the day after we got engaged, Chad was like, ‘Okay, we gotta pick the wedding date! We gotta do all this stuff!'”
Had a blast seeing and meeting some amazing people from the NFL celebrating @kurtwarner13's induction into the Hall of Fame. Thank you @chadjohnson77 for bringing me into your world. He's been making fun of me because of all of my inaccurate football references. #HAILMARY 😘 Photography: @henryphotographs
