Miguel’s fiancee Nazanin Mandi has been busy showing off her engagement ring on the ‘gram. And she’s totally glowing. Peep her rock inside….

Just a few weeks ago, it was reported Miguel finally popped the question to his longtime girlfriend (of 10 years) Nazanin Mandi. And now, Nazanin is flossing her stunning engagement ring on the ‘gram.

After a luxurious #BAEcation in the Dominican Republic to celebrate the New Year, there was talk that the Wildheart singer had popped the question to his lady. Neither of the two has confirmed the news, but Nazanin has been posting up Instagram shots showing off her fabulous new rock:

Not mad.

Before he popped the question, the R&B crooner opened up in an interview with Hot 97 last year on why he hadn’t asked Nazanin’s hand in marriage. He said, “I think I’ve come so far as a man and I’m just starting to feel solid where I can be like, ‘You know what? I think I can hold this down legitimately.’ I think now people throw things around like marriage. I just wasn’t raised like that.”

He continued, “I just follow my instincts. I think she’s learned that and she’s had to adjust and had to learn and also embrace. And I love her more for that.”

Looks like he’s ready to commit to her for life now.
