Three sources close to Blac confirmed the engagement to E! News Tuesday. “They are so happy,” an insider said. “Chyna’s been texting her friends how excited she is!” Rob had asked Blac’s family for their permission before proposing, two sources add. Her mom, Tokyo Toni, gushed about the engagement via Instagram Tuesday, writing, “Chy and Rob are my favorite two people in the world. They both have shown strength diversity and triumph. These kids are fabulous and both are great role models to young old or children. I have so much respect for this couple and all attached.” As for a wedding date, Tokyo played coy, telling her followers, “To be continued.”
Blac’s BFF, Amber Rose, gave the couple a shout-out on Instagram Tuesday, writing, “Congratulations to my Family @blacchyna and @robkardashian!!! Pease don’t let nothing or no one tear u guys apart! I never seen my sis so happy and I couldn’t be more happy for her! Sometimes we find love in the strangest places Lol God Bless you 2! Now let’s get this wedding together so y’all can start making some babies #TrueLove #putaringonitsouknowitsreal #BlacRob.”
Though it seems to be a happy time for the twosome, some fans were quick to question whether the engagement is real, and if so, whether it will last. After all, Blac has played into the engagement rumors with Rob before. Together since January, this will be the first marriage for both Blac and Rob. The Lashed salon owner was previously engaged to Tyga, with whom she has a 3-year-old son, King Cairo Stevenson.
