The couple has been engaged since last June. Belair announced their engagement in this Instagram post that needed no words.
Back in April, the couple revealed their wedding date as June 23.

They have been in a relationship for two years, with Belair making it public in this Instagram post in October 2016.
Belair — real name Bianca Blair — signed a developmental contract with WWE in 2016. Prior to joining the company, she competed in track at the University of South Carolina, Texas A&M University and the University of Tennessee. She also made a name for herself on the CrossFit scene.
Belair’s big break in wrestling came when she was part of the Mae Young Classic last summer. She lost to eventual tournament winner Kairi Sane in the second round but turned in a solid performance.
Proclaiming to be the strongest, fastest, toughest and all-around best NXT Superstar going, the athletic Belair considers herself the “EST of NXT.” Belair is getting a gradual push on NXT as she beat Dakota Kai on this week’s show.
Ford — real name Kenneth Crawford — signed a WWE developmental contract in 2015, and he started to gain his footing last year after forming a tag team with Angelo Dawkins known as The Street Profits. With their high-energy style and entertainment, The Street Profits have developed into one of the most popular acts in NXT.
Both Belair and Ford seemingly have bright futures in WWE and will most likely be promoted to the main roster in the future.
