The couple got engaged in September 2013 after welcoming their first child Andre four months earlier – 11 April 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Speaking on how Paul popped the question, Anita said he took her to a jewelry store and asked her to pick any diamond ring of her choice and right there he dropped on one knee and popped the question. The following year, the couple held their court wedding in Ikoyi.

Paul revealed in an interview that Anita’s father didn’t quite like him initially probably due to his dreadlocks and earring but that they are now best of friends.
