Desean Black also posted a message to Instagram about his wife-to-be saying :

“Fellas, when a woman looks at you like this, it’s a clear indication that you’re doing the right thing. Now, when she delivers unconditional love that you’ve never experienced, it’s another clear indication that you’ve found the one. Only a fool would let someone as special as this slip away. So I did what any wise man would do and put a ring ? on it. I love you to pieces @msamberpriley, or should I say the future Mrs. Black ?. #happilyengaged A king will always protect his Queen. #blacklove #engaged”
