Eve‘s love is going the distance.
The singer-actress is engaged to British designer and Gumball 3000 founder Maximillion Cooper, E! News exclusively confirms.
Eve’s rep tells us that Cooper popped the question on Christmas Day, the sparkly evidence of which was first spied on Instagram in a photo in which she’s surrounded by family—and flashing a diamond ring!
The pic prompted an immediate flood of speculative congratulations from fans, none of which the entertainer denied. In fact, she responded with heart emojis!
“#familytime!!!! Me and my mom and my lil brother Farrod just got to the English country side,” wrote the artist born Eve Jeffers, what turned out to be a very revealing caption.
“Feel so#blessed to be with my family and sharing my life here. I pray that you bring 2014 in with people you #love. And nothing but #good #energy.”
Cooper was born in Staffordshire, England. He and Eve have been splitting their time between the U.S. and London.
This will be the first trip down the aisle for Eve. Cooper, who has been dating the former Ruff Ryders rapper since at least 2011, has four children from his previous marriage.
Cooper is also the founder of the international motor rally known as Gumball 3000, in which more than 100 exotic cars are driven around the world, via a different route each year, by way of public streets. This year’s 15th-anniversary rally went from Copenhagen to Monaco.
Eve, who in addition to sharing a Grammy with Gwen Stefani for the hit tune “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” is best known for her work on the big screen in Barbershop and xXx and on TV in her own sitcom Eve.
Cooper posted pics from their very festive-looking Christmas in Edinburgh together.
“#EVE #christmas overload! #christmastree#decorations #lights #icicles #presents #edinburgh#happyholidays @therealeve,” he wrote on one. And on another: “My lil’ #scottish #Eve in #edinburgh #boxingday#mulledcider #happyholidays.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
