SINGER Tayla Parx is engaged to her girlfriend, Shirlene Quigley.
Choreographer Shirlene, 36, revealed in a sweet couple shoot that the Thank U, Next co-writer, 27, popped the question.
Shirlene showed off her engagement ring as she kissed and cuddled Tayla while sitting on a park bench.
Tayla's proposal comes just weeks after the couple went skiing on a romantic winter getaway.
Announcing the happy news on Thursday, Shirlene wrote: "From the first week we met, I knew you would be in my life forever.
"I am a believer, I believe in God, in fairytale love stories. Honoring my values, finding pure love, and someone who would pursue my heart, was something I prayed for daily."
The dancer added that she had struggled with her sexuality for "years", until she met Tayla – real name Taylor Monet Parks.
"To be transparent, as a believer, I struggled for years being attracted to both men and women," she said.
"I told myself, for years it was something I wouldn’t do again (date a woman). Being judged doesn’t feel good, & that scared me.
"Until I met someone who showed me what love looked and felt like. She loved that I love Jesus and she loves Him too."
She went on: "Someone who not only I thought was super beautiful from outside, but also the inside.
"Her eyes light my heart, and laugh fills me with more joy, her generosity with her time is unmatched and her constant pursuit of my heart, has made me feel like such a queen. Love is the most important gift of all and it has surpassed anything."
Shirlene concluded: "Safe to say, I said “YES” and I am no longer single lol. @taylaparx you’re my forever. I love you and I’m thankful for our friendship, love, and future."
Tayla announced the news by sharing her fiance's post on her Instagram Stories.
Several weeks earlier, she cuddled up to Shirlene in sweet selfies from their winter vacation over the New Year.
"Spent the first half of 2021 spending time reconnecting with myself and the ones I love," she wrote.
"So here's a photo dump of my first couple days of the new year. I'm recharged and ready to get back to the studio."
Shirlene commented on the post: "Best holiday ever. Words are not enough to say how thankful I am for you."
