Keri Hilson is absolutely radiant and now we know who to credit for the singer's newfound glow. In an interview with Global Grind, the Riddick star opened up about finding love in both Christ and boyfriend Serge Ibaka.
"I hear that I'm glowing. That's the word that I hear most often, for the past six months of my life, that I'm glowing. I don't know what's changed. I've been in a relationship for a year, I rededicated my life to Christ in April 2012, I came out of a really dark depression. I am happy and I'm glad people can see when you are genuinely happy," she said.
"For years I was smiling for pictures and doing the same, but I think people can tell the difference. That's just been a testament to the fact that people can really see your aura."
Hilson explained how she rededicated her life to God first and then met the NBA player six months after she made that decision, which only cemented her faith in up above.
"And I also felt like God is a comedian, for real. He gave me everything I wanted and everything I thought I didn't want. You know? He's like, 'Ha! You've got to trust me. Stop putting limits on who I am and what I do.' I absolutely had limits — I had parameters," she said. "I had a huge blockage on the types of guys I would date and just when I was — I had tweeted something, 'I guess it's time for me to adjust the parameters of dating,' or something like that, and it was months before meeting him actually, but it was just saying that sometimes you have to trust God and stop putting rules and limits and parameters on things. The moment I accepted that, was the moment he came my way."
And with such a catch, I'm sure she feels like the angels have blessed her every single day.
