"I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don't know," she said in an interview Sister2Sister magazine back in August. "I'm going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be ... I guess it will happen when it's the right time."

The marriage will be Brandy's first, though she has a 10-year-old daughter, Sy'rai, with ex Robert Smith, to whom she purported to be married for two years out of concern for her reputation.
