Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Lil Scrappy and Bambi announce surprise engagement

Lil Scrappy and Bambi 1

Looks like someone poured the tea a little too soon! Lil Scrappy and Bambi, the love-struck couple of LHHATL fame, went and got themselves engaged this week–and we know it happened thanks to a fellow cast member accidentally congratulating the pair on social media!

As VH1, ever-vigilant about staying ahead of a story, reported shortly after the news broke, it was Tammy Rivera who updated her Instagram page with a picture of Bambi’s hand bearing a massive diamond ring. She captioned the photo “When you’re super happy for your friends.”

Tammy quickly deleted that update, but Bambi’s cousin–whose Instagram account is private–then updated his feed with a photo of Lil Scrappy and Bambi during the proposal itself. In the shot, Scrappy is on one knee before Bambi, who looks overcome by joy and disbelief. Further backing up the engagement news is the cousin’s caption for the photo: “I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE THERE @reallilscrappy you gotta do it over for me!!!!! @adizthebam I Looooove you guys so much Betta keep my cousin Happy foEvvvvvvvvaaa.”

Noted gossip site No Shade All Tea managed to snag this screenshot of Bambi’s huge engagement ring:

We can only assume that this moment will air on a future Love and Hip Hop Atlanta episode–or during the reunion special!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Darryl Richardson!

    I’m not happy about this news. The person he is suppose to be engaged to is Erica. But hey…..As long as they are happy.
