Maya Jama has appeared to confirm her engagement to Ben Simmons after posting a photo of a necklace with a date in December as the pendant.
The 27-year-old presenter is believed to have got engaged to the NBA player over Christmas when he proposed in the US where he lives after seven months of dating.
While Maya has remained fairly coy over details of her relationship, even dodging Mo Gilligan’s questioning during the Bafta’s last week, she shared a number of videos of their Valentine’s Day celebrations.
In one clip, Ben embraced Maya as he stood behind her in the bathroom, kissing her head.
It’s safe to say that he didn’t scrimp on the flowers either, with Maya showing a hotel room bursting at the seams with gorgeous bouquets as rose petals covered the floor and candles lined the skirting board.
In another post, Maya uploaded a snap of a necklace, with the date December 18 2021 making up one-half of the infinity symbol.
Maya added an emoji of a ring next to the jewellery.
It’s previously been reported that Ben ‘chose the ring himself and felt he knew exactly what she would want. Maya said yes and they’re both thrilled’.
A source told The Sun : ‘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.’
The couple appeared to celebrate the news with close friends and family with a festive party and are clearly keen on keeping the news private.
They confirmed their romance when they attended Wimbledon together during the summer, putting on a PDA-filled display.
