After years of nurturing their relationships under the spotlight and in private, several Kenyan celebrities chose to elevate their love stories in a truly romantic fashion.

In a series of enchanting, private events, their men, brimming with love and anticipation, decided it was time to take a grand leap. With hearts full of hope and hands holding precious rings, they got down on one knee in settings that sparkled with glitz and glamour.

As fans eagerly await their wedding date, here are some of the Kenyan celebrities who got engaged in 2023:

Eric Omondi and Lynne Njihia

On Valentine’s Day this year, the comedian turned activist officially put a ring on it. Lynne took to Instagram to show off the huge rock given to her when Eric asked her to be his wife.

“New Chapter Same Book💍❤️ Words Can’t Express How Happy I Am. I Love You Babyyy @ericomondi #lover girl #out of the market,” she wrote.

It is believed that the couple had been dating for over a year and some months after announcing their engagement, they welcomed their rainbow baby, Princess Kyla Omondi.

Dorea Chege and DJ Dibul

Born Beatrice Dorea Chege, Dorea first met her fiance during a high school mentorship program.

In a previous interview, DJ Dibul born Dickson Ndegwa Nyathore said, “We met in my former high school, where she came to do a talk. She does student mentorship sana sana high school, I also do the same, so tulikuwa tumeitwa. I used to go to that high school, so that’s where we met.”

He would then crush on her and was in her DMs which she always ignored. He then popped the questions early this year on Dorea’s birthday.

Klaus and Nasieku

Last month, TikTok stars Jeremiah Muiruri aka Klaus went on one knee asking Alberta Nasieku to marry him. In the video, the two got engaged in an intimate setting in the presence of only two of their friends.

Klaus was dressed in a white two-piece African shirt and pants with a yellow and black detail while Nasieku wore a brown and black flowing dress. Emotions ran over Nasieku’s face as he popped the question. In a previous interview, the two disclosed that they met through a shoot and Klaus did not know who Nasieku was.

“My account was not doing well at that time so when we met it had around 2,000 followers. She comes and she is on the side, I’m looking at her and I think she might be proud because she has over 30,000 followers. So, we hopped into a video together that was trending and everyone was talking about our chemistry,” he reminisces.

Though they did not exchange contacts at that time, the video went viral. “We would then meet a week after coincidentally and did another video which went viral to a 1m views.”

Moya David and Julie Ndunge

On 18th December 2023, TikTok dancer David Moya seemingly proposed to his lover Julie Ndunge. In a video on her socials, Julie flaunted her ring as her man drove her to an unknown destination.

She would then caption, “🤍🕊️💍❤️ @moyadavid1,” as she paraded her enormous ring and bouquet of flowers. Moya David would then respond with, “Your beauty, intelligence, and your kindness make me fall in love with you every day! You are my everything❤️”
