The couple have been officially dating since January 2013 and have been spotted out together at high-profile events, including the MTV VMAs a few months back. The rap star, real name Nayvadius D. Wilburn, is said to have proposed to his love with a stunning 15-carat diamond ring.
Though Ciara may be more well-known than her fiancé, his career is definitely on the up with a current support slot on Drake's Canadian tour underway and a collaboration with Rihanna under his belt. The 29 year-old has one child from a previous relationship and was involved in controversy when the mother filed for child support in 2012 which required Future to take a DNA test to prove he was the father.

After his DNA matched his child's, Future was ordered to begin to pay child support of $1662 a month, according to The Daily Mail. In the meantime, another woman has come forward to claim that her child is also Future's but her claim is yet to be tested.
Grammy-winning Ciara has had a recent hit with 'Body Party' but her most well-known tracks include 'Goodies,' 'Promise' and 'Like a Boy.'
