It’s official: Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds is engaged to longtime girlfriend Nicole Pantenburg.
The 54-year-old first revealed the good news during an interview with Toni Braxton on BET, and his rep confirmed the engagement on Tuesday.
“Would you ever consider getting married again?” Toni asked the musician, to which he replied, “I’ve already considered it. I’m engaged, so yes.”
Babyface and former back-up dancer Nicole started dating in 2007 and have one child – daughter Peyton, born in September 2008.
The award-winning singer has been married once before, to Tracey Edmonds. He and Tracey divorced in 2005 after 13 years of marriage, and have two sons, Brandon and Dylan.
It looks like our favorite crooner has learned a thing or two about love since being with Nicole. According to Babyface, trust and honest are everything.
“The main thing is being honest with yourself and being honest with your feelings,” he told Braxton.
“When we’re not honest with ourselves we just accept situations, don’t talk about them, and as you said, ignore the elephant in the room. You better recognize there is an elephant in the room and deal with it, because a lot of times the elephant in the room is the one that you put in there, so you have to deal with it.”
