Maya Jama Is Engaged To Her Beau Ben Simmons After Seven Months Of Dating

The presenter, 27, and US basketball star, 25, are reportedly set to wed after Ben popped the question over the festive period. 

The Sun claims the pair- who went public with their romance earlier this year- have only told close friends and family the alleged happy news.

A source told the publication: ‘Ben adores Maya and has fallen head over heels for her. He picked up the ring on Jewelers’ Row in the diamond district of Philadelphia the day before he proposed.

‘He chose the ring himself and felt he knew exactly what she would want. Maya said yes and they’re both thrilled.’

They added: ‘Ben was so excited, but they’ve decided to keep the news low-key and tell only those closest to them. Maya flew to New Jersey to spend Christmas with him and is still there now.

‘They had a small family gathering last weekend and announced their engagement.’

A representative for Maya has been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.

Maya and Ben were first romantically linked in June, after they were seen together on a night out at restaurant Sexy Fish in London.

The couple went public while kissing in the stands at Wimbledon in front of the world’s media, as they stopped by the annual tennis tournament.

Ben previously dated Kendall Jenner, 25, but the pair called things off in May 2019 after months of dating on-and-off.

Maya, meanwhile, dated rapper Stormzy for four years, with the pair splitting the same year – ending their relationship in order to focus on their careers instead.

However the pair were spotted looking cosy together in the smoking area at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 last month.

The two stars had been one of the most popular couple in showbiz prior to their shock split, with the stunning presenter moving out of their shared home shortly after her 25th birthday celebrations.

Stormzy seemed to address rumours he had strayed in his subsequent music releases – with his song Lessons said to be about the heartbreaking split and lyrics confessing that he had ‘done the dirt’ on the TV star.

However, the award-winning musician later revealed he hadn’t been unfaithful throughout his relationship but instead, admitted to showing ‘disrespect’ to his famous ex.

‘If there was a box of what a good woman is, she ticks every one, she’s amazing. But I didn’t cheat on her. I actually didn’t cheat,’ he told HOT 97 at the start of 2020.

‘Don’t get it twisted, I’m still definitely an a***hole. 100%, that’s a fact. I’m an a***hole.

‘But I thought now was a good time to say that I didn’t cheat on my ex.’
