DESTINY’S CHILD star Michelle Williams has announced that she’s engaged.

Williams’ partner, pastor Chad Johnson, proposed to her in March but the singer shared the news with yesterday in an interview with People magazine.

Williams said: “We do wanna get married very, very soon.

“We’ve been moving very quickly and planning. Why wait? I want to get married now, but he wants a wedding!”

Johnson met Williams in March last year, when she attended a spiritual retreat run by Johnson in Arizona.

The 40-year-old pastor and life coach has worked as a chaplain for pro sports teams, such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and LA Dodgers.

Johnson proposed to Williams at Pebble beach, California. As part of the proposal, Johnson presented Williams with a video of him travelling to meet her family in Illinois and asking them for their blessing.

“I started weeping and wailing when I see all these special people,” said Williams.

She added: “Towards the end of the video, something in my head said: ‘Pull yourself together! He’s about to propose! Stop all this crying!'”

The couple are planning to have a short engagement and Williams has already bought her wedding dress.

Williams said: “We’ve been moving very quickly and planning. Why wait? I want to get married now, but he wants a wedding!”

Johnson, 37, is hopeful that their love can be a symbol of positivity in the current socio-political climate.

He said: “I’m white, she’s black...What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with the tension in the world and in our country.”
