According to People;

She followed a path of white rose petals and gardenias out to their hotel balcony, where Phillips, 46, arranged a romantic dinner of her favorite foods, including chicken soup. Then, he surprised her with a 17.5 carat diamond ring, hidden under her dessert tray.

La Toya explained how shocked she was by the proposal and she was wondering why he was so nervous. But when he dropped to his knee  “My heart just stopped“, says Jackson. “I was in total shock“. “We’re best friends and we’ve been business partners forever. It was always professional – no one really crossed those boundaries.”

She is yet to release any details on the wedding but we will keep you posted.
