Michelle Williams is engaged!
The Destiny’s Child singer and Pastor Chad Johnson are officially engaged after dating one year.
The lovebirds have finally gone public with their month-long secret engagement in an exclusive with People magazine.
Williams met her husband-to-be in March of 2017, when she attended a spiritual retreat in Arizona run by Johnson, a pastor and life coach who has also worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers.
“I was in a horrible, dark place,” says Williams, 37, who had recently ended a relationship and opened up about a cheating ex on The Real. “I just needed to go somewhere where I could get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation — get connected to God.”
Johnson, 40, could relate.
“When we met, both of us were in very similar places on a personal level,” says Johnson, who at the time had all but given up dating. “Michelle was coming off the heels of a really bad relationship, and I was just in a place of despair as well.”
Michelle announced her engagement via social media on Thursday:
