Ashanti’s dad revealed that Nelly asked him for permission to marry his daughter while speaking at the couple’s baby shower, last weekend. A clip of the speech has been circulating on social media in the days since. The two, who reconciled last year after a decade apart, are expecting their first child together.

“We had a discussion about him wanting to marry her. We had a little brief conversation,” Ashanti’s dad, Ken-Kaide Thomas Douglas, recalled. “For me, it’s very special for a man in this era to ask for someone’s hand [in marriage], especially your daughter’s. I was very impressed with the fact that you asked.” He concluded: “I’m glad things worked out for you. God’s way will always happen best.”
