Mom knows best! Rihanna’s mother, Monica Braitwaite, is convinced that Drake is the one for her daughter, and went as far as to offer Rihanna’s hand in marriage!
A source told OK! exclusively that Monica knew Drake was in it for the long haul after he professed his love for the Barbadian beauty in front of millions. At the MTV VMAs just weeks ago, he told the crowd before presenting Rihanna with the Vanguard award that he has been in love with her since he was 22-years-old!
And the comment did not go unnoticed, as Rihanna’s mom, “offered to take Drake ring shopping the next day,” said the insider. The rapper even hung out backstage with RiRi’s family after presenting her with the award, before the two jetted off to Miami together.
By the sound of things, a wedding may be imminent! “Drake laughed off the comment but he’s already been looking at engagement rings,” the source said. “The whole family loves Drake and have been telling her for years to cut her other guys looks and get serious with him.”
This is pretty shocking given the couple’s rocky history, but it looks like they both have matured and are more committed than ever to making the relationship work this time around. “This time they’re all in,” said the source. “Monica can see that Drake genuinely loves her daughter. There could be wedding bells soon.”
