Mimi Faust and Tamera Young are engaged: Breaking norms to becoming family, their romance will leave you mushy
Mimi Faust recently posted a picture on social media with Tamera Young, and now we all can hear the wedding bells ringing
Mimi Faust rose to fame when she starred in VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta'. Faust's personal life has been fraught with a lot of drama but she always managed to keep a low profile when it came to her relationship with WNBA star Tamera Young. The couple has been together for a few years now and Faust's latest post suggests that they are all set to walk down the aisle soon.
Faust recently shared a picture of her stunning engagement ring on her Instagram with her hand placed on Young's hand who had "She said YES!!" written on her palm. The duo sparked dating rumors when the 'L&HH' star posted a video of them together back in 2016 and now they are all set to exchange wedding vows.
Back in 2016, Faust shocked her fans when she came out as a lesbian and dated Chris Gould at the beginning of Season 5. By the end of the season, she also admitted that it was her first serious relationship with a woman. Later in May 2016, Chris broke up with her. Before Chris, Faust also dated Stevie J for 15 years.
Tamera and Faust met when Tamera made an appearance on the 'L&HH' spin-off show, 'Stevie J & Joseline', and they have reportedly kept their relationship under wraps ever since. But their social media soon started to answer all the questions. In July 2016, right after her split with Chris, she posted a picture with Young and the couple looked extremely cozy with each other. Faust also shared a happy picture with her daughter and Young titled: "Good morning from me & my two favorite girls @tyyoung11 @iamevagiselle #haveagreatday." To this Young replied, "Proof that family doesn’t have to be blood I love you both." When Young was in Atlanta playing for WNBA, Mimi and Eva went to see her game. And after she secured a win, Eva ran up to her to celebrate her win. Here is the adorable video.
Faust was raised by her single mother who was a Scientologist and was abandoned later for the sake of the church. Talking about her childhood experience at the church she said, "They put me out at 13. They actually came to me and said I was a freeloader because I ate their food and slept there and I wasn't indeed working for them." Later in the late '90s and early 2000s, she appeared in Kelly Price's single 'It's Gonna rain' and Pharrel William's single 'Frontlin'. She later established her cleaning service company named Keep it clean Inc. Later in 2012, she joined VH1's spin-off show 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta'. She also appeared in the TV show 'Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath'.
Young was born in North Carolina. She is one of the best American basketball players and also a free agent in Women's National Basketball Association. Young even led her team to the WNBA Finals in 2015. During a 2017 interview with Jon Evans, she revealed how her sister's sacrifice helped her secure a future in basketball, "My mother couldn't afford for both of us to play with the traveling; it was just a lot more expensive. My sister said 'Mom, since Tamera loves the game more than I do, I'll just sit out and let her do it'."
As the couple shared the beautiful engagement pictures, best wishes started pouring in on social media. Well, it seems like Mimi's fans can already hear the wedding bells ringing.
