Singer-songwriter Babyface, 54, is engaged to his former back-up dancer and longtime girlfriend Nicole Patenburg.
Babyface, whose real name is Kenneth Edmonds, announced the engagement to Patenburg on his collaborative discussion on BET with Toni Braxton, Love, Marriage and Divorce.
During Love, Marriage and Divorce the two R&B singers have a collaborative discussion of what the title implies. It is also the title of the singers’ duets album that was released on Feb.4.
The conversation between the friends starts by discussing how they were able to pick the topics for the album. It’s not long however, until Braxton asks the personal question if Babyface would consider getting married again.
“I’ve already considered it,” Babyface answered the question. “I’m engaged, so yes.”
According to Us Magazine, this will be Babyface’s second marriage. In 2005, he had divorced from Tracey Edmonds who he had married to for 13 years. The two have two sons together.
Babyface and Patenburg began dating in 2007 and welcomed their daughter Peyton in September of 2008.
Babyface also revealed what he had learned from past relationships.
“The main thing is being honest with yourself and being honest with your feelings. 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,” he said.
