As her music reveals, Monica has been through it in terms of relationships. But when she met Lakers’ player Shannon Brown in June of 2010 while shooting her “Love All Over Me” video, her luck definitely changed. Life imitated art and the love interest in that video became the love interest of her life.

They dated, got engaged, and married all in less than six months. Theirs was a whirlwind romance, but definitely seems to be going strong nearly two years later.

During the Radio One Fest, Monica sat down with TT Torez of iPowerRichmond and talked about her love life. HelloBeautiful reports:

We met on the set of my video shoot “Love All Over Me,” reflects Monica.”That was the first time I had ever laid eyes on him, but I knew it wouldn’t be the last. It was instantaneous. He was very genuine. He’s so easy on the eyes. You kind of get over the outer appearance doing what I do after a while,” she continued.

“It doesn’t take that long in this business, you see how ugly people are on the inside, so with him is was really interesting I think to me that the first time we met he was talking about his grandmother.”

The “It All Belongs To Me” singer was wary of their connection at first. “I fought a lot of it because I was a single mom with two small boys so I was fighting it. I stated praying for confirmation,” she tells TT.

“Sometimes as a woman you have to be OK with not knowing all the answers. I started asking for confirmation and I enjoyed every second with him instead of thinking so much and try to map out how it should be. I sat back and let him be a man and let him lead him into what we are now.”

Well, that plan looks like it definitely worked out for her! She didn’t say what her “confirmation” was. Him proposing, maybe?

Of course, you can’t date someone in the league without encountering rumors, but these two seem to have weathered them pretty well. For those wanting an inside look at the love that started with just one look, Monica has already said there won’t be a “Monica and Shannon Brown” reality show, so keep dreaming. That’s good for them though cause we know that reality shows tend to destroy marriages. It looks like they’re in it  for the long haul.

    I pray it works out for them. If they both respect each other, Monica not belittling the man when he makes a mistake or a bad decision, he doesn’t run around cheat get somebody else pregnant and they both work together and have the same mentality that they are willing to make the marriage work it could last.

    The thing is you dont see from shannon a lot of the times because hes not really into the media…but on his twitter the other day he professed his love for her, and how much she keeps him sane. it was the sweetest thing. also, he did a interview recently for his charity…and he talked about his love for her…keeping their marrige strong…and how he wanted more babies. their relationship is so inspiring to me. i just love them together

    She ‘let’ him be a man? Was he a woman before they met?

      Exactly. I am so tired of this woman’s eternal search for the perfect love.I feel as though I know far more about Monica’s thoughts on love than I do her thoughts on music. Why is that? Also it irks me when women speak so definitively on what a “man” is. You are a woman how did u become an expert on being a man? Makes no sense

        Stop being so neegative and let the woman be inlove with her HUSBAND!

    Monica, you looked beautiful at the BET Awards, radiant is the word to describe you. I get skeptical, when the woman is the one always confessing her love for her man. I know, it’s normal because women get asked more but try to do less talking, let people see it for themselves.

    That’s so nice how you expressed your undying love for Shannon but,for a change Monica let’s hear Shannon express those same sentiments about you and about him leading as a man that’s what he is supposed too do and by the way I loved your performance at the BET Awards
