Singer Kenny Lattimore & Judge Faith Jenkins Are Engaged!
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple, singer Kenny Lattimore and Judge Faith Jenkins! The Grammy nominated singer revealed their exciting news on his Instagram, explaining just how much his fiancée means to him. He writes:
“I’m happy to share the exciting news about our engagement today! My fiancée Judge Faith Jenkins is known to many of you as the beauty with (a whole lot of) brains. She is indeed that & much more!?
Faith, I am forever grateful to God for His faithfulness in sending me you. To say you are the total package is a vast understatement. You are powerful and passionate about life and yet your presence brings me so much peace. Your drive and ambition never cease to amaze me and your heart is filled with love & empathy for others. Everything you do on and off tv is done with dignity and grace – it’s why you’re an inspiration to so many, including me. I posted my song “Deserve” last week as it says everything about us that I feel. “We have something so rare … you don’t deserve the wait any longer. I’m ready to make you mine forever.” I’m honored you said YES to our forever!“
Lattimore also wrote a special that you to friends including DeVon Franklin and his wife Megan Good.
Soon after, Judge Jenkins, 41, shared the news of their engagement writing:
“Kenny: You are one of the kindest, most genuine souls on the planet. I’ve never met anyone like you. In a world where I was told my standards were too high, you came in my life from day one & exceeded them all! You made me thankful that I refused to settle. You showed me the essence & integrity of true love. The first time you took me by the hand to lead us in prayer I knew this would be different. And I was right. (just remember, I’m always right) You embody all I’ve ever wanted in a life partner. And on top of it all you’re an amazing dad.”
After sharing their exciting engagement news, many friends took to their comments to wish them well wishes including Kelly Price, Gizelle Bryant, and actor Christian Keyes.
Judge Faith has managed to keep her personal life away from the social media. Although, she once was rumored to be married after she tweeted in 2012 saying that she was going to get married on a Vineyard with her possible husband-to-be. The Judge has never revealed the details of who he is nor did she say if the wedding happened or not.
Lattimore was previously married to fellow singer Chante Moore for 9 years. In an interview, he opened up on his divorce stating:
“I started to understand that this is why marriage is for a lifetime. The commitment is even higher than the person because people are going to let you down. I don’t think we were committed to the same commitment.”
At the time, he said that there was no regrets and he would marry again.
“When I do it again — which I am sure I will do it again because I do believe in marriage, the institution of marriage 100 percent — I will leave other people out, except those who are truly ministering and feeding into the success of my marriage.”
Congratulations to Kenny and Faith!
