“Can’t wait to find ways to make this about me,” Nicole, 40, jokingly wrote via her Instagram Story on Wednesday while toasting her 23-year-old sister’s happy news.
Lionel, 72, and ex-wife Brenda Harvey informally adopted Nicole when she was a child, making things legal when she was 9 years old. Following the American Idol judge’s split from Harvey in 1993, he married Diane Alexander. The couple welcomed son Miles Richie in May 1994 and daughter Sofia in August 1998 before calling it quits in 2004.
“She said yes ❤️❤️❤️,” the music exec wrote via Instagram on Wednesday alongside a snap of the newly engaged couple kissing somewhere tropical. Sofia replied, “I love you.”
“Forever isn’t long enough @elliot,” she captioned a picture of her love down on one knee surrounded by flowers and candles at sunset.
While Miles, 27, didn’t appear to be at the proposal, he was quick to send his sister a heartfelt message via his Instagram Story on Wednesday. “My two favorite people,” he captioned the same romantic snap.
Ross, 33, was among the many celebrities who gushed over the couple after learning the news. “❤️❤️❤️❤️ congratulations sis!! Sending lots of love to you both,” the Star alum commented on Sofia’s post.
