Waka Flocka Flame Engaged To Longtime Girlfriend

Instead of celebrating his birthday with cake and presents, rapper Waka Flocka Flame commemorated his 27th by getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend on Friday. His new fiance, Tammy Rivera, or "Mz Flame," posted the proof on her Instagram page and was sure to send along some birthday wishes as well.

"Happy Birthday!!.. To my fiance... Lord knows we been through it all! An yet our souls still manage [sic]."

The message cuts off, but the picture is clear -- the bride-to-be and her beau sporting tattoos of each other's name on their ring fingers in lieu of a more traditional diamond ring. Here's to hoping marital bliss proves as permanent as the skin art.
