La Toya Jackson and Jeffré Phillips are engaged

Jeffré Phillips proposed to Michael Jackson’s sister with a 17.5 carat diamond engagement ring.

The 57-year-old singer confirmed her engagement in an interview to Good Morning America.

“Yes, I am. I’m engaged. And I’m excited about it. Yes, I’m very much engaged … And it’s wonderful,” she told ABC’s Abbie Boudreau.

While a wedding date hasn’t been established yet, Jackson also revealed her desire to become a mother and she is thinking about adoption.

“I’ve always wanted to be a mother, all my life,” the singer said, adding that if has a daughter she might call her Paris, just like her niece, Michael Jackson’s daughter.

For La Toya Jackson, who was married to her former manager Jack Gordon, this will be the second marriage.
