JR Smith Confirms Engagement: “Some Things You Shouldn’t Have To Explain”

August 17, 2015  |  

For at least a week, whispers have been suggesting that former New York Knick JR Smith ditched his girlfriend of two years, Ashley Weatherspoon, and secretly married his daughter’s mother, Jewel Harris. However, as it turns out, those rumors may only be partially true.

Over the weekend, Smith confirmed that he is, in fact, engaged to Harris with an adorable Instagram video, which captured the proposal.

The couple’s daughter, Demi Smith, assists her father in requesting her mother’s hand in marriage by whipping out the ring box.

“Mommy, will you marry us?” she asks.

Harris, who broke into laughter during the proposal, accepted. It doesn’t appear that the couple has actually tied the knot yet.

Celebrity marriage proposals are almost always a big deal on social media; however, this situation is particularly interesting because most fans were under the impression that Smith and Weatherspoon were still in a relationship before the news broke. It’s unclear how long ago they parted ways, but we’re wishing all three parties happiness and lasting love.
