Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna engagement: Friends and family react to surprise announcement

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna engagement 1

The Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna engagement is just over a day old, and the couple’s closest friends and family couldn’t be happier for the couple! The pair made their intentions official in a series of surprise social media updates yesterday, and, since then, congratulations and well-wishes have trickled in from some surprising corners.

Perhaps no reaction was more unexpected–or more kind–than that of Blac Chyna’s ex Tyga. The pair have a son together, but haven’t always been on the best of terms, thanks to Blac’s contentious relationship with Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner. However, in a series of tweets, Tyga made it clear he only wants what’s best for Blac and Rob:

On the other hand, Blac Chyna’s mom wasn’t quite as gracious. The always-entertaining Tokyo Toni let her feelings be known on Instagram–and, though her account is private, The Shade Room got a screencap of the post:

Looks like someone needs to take #BlacChyna’s mother’s phone… ASAP ??? #Kardashians #ChyRo

Blac Chyna’s BFF Amber Rose–who’s also had her share of clashes with the Kardashians–kept things loving with her own update:

One group of people that hasn’t yet said anything about the Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna engagement? The Kardashian family itself. Though each member of the clan has updated social media (in some cases several times) since the announcement, no one has wished the couple congratulations–or, for that matter, said anything disparaging.

However, the man who fashioned Blac’s gigantic engagement ring was quick to capitalize on the moment with his own well-wishes. Noted jeweller Ben Baller–formerly Ben Yang–cut the ring’s seven (7!) karat diamong according to Rob’s wishes, and shared a shot of it on Instagram:
