Ballerina Misty Copeland’s love life is on phase( e )!
In June 2015, Copeland made history when she became the American Ballet Theatre’s first black female principal dancer.
“I’m here to be a vessel for all these brown ballerinas who have come before me, ” she told Time in April 2015.
Copeland is no bridezilla; she previously told E! News that she wanted her big day to be simple and laid-back.
“I feel like I get to become a fairy princess on stage and wear unbelievable costumes and garments to galas, ” she said. “So, for me, I just want to have a simple, as easy-going day as I can have and only not have it be a big reveal. I only want it to be simple and classy and not feel like I’m in a tutu.”
The happy couple met at a club in 2004 while Evans was out with his cousin, performer Taye Diggs. Evans popped the question to Copeland in August 2015 with a sparkly cushion-cut engagement ringwith a diamond halo.
“He was my first boyfriend, ” Copeland told Elle in 2014. “He taught me to communicate in ways I’d never learned before, to not run away from problems, and mind sitting down and think about things critically. And he made me feel like I really did have a bright future as a ballerina.”
Now let’s all sit back and not-so-patiently wait until their wedding photos come out.
