Nicole Murphy has been happily engaged to Michael Strahan since 2009, and the Hollywood Exes star will have you know that she doesn't care when she finally walks down the aisle.
"I'm not under the pressure. It seems like everyone else is. Everyone's like, 'You all together?' 'What's going on?' 'How come I haven't seen you post a picture of him?' And I'm like, 'It's none of ya'll's business at this point.' I'm good!" Murphy recently told The Jasmine Brand.
Both Strahan and Murphy have been there, done that when it comes to marriage, so it's not that surprising that the two are taking their sweet time before saying those vows. Strahan went through an ugly divorce with Jean Muggli eight years ago and in Ebony's August 2014 issue described how he and Murphy have found a sense of normalcy in their relationship. Murphy, who was once married to actor-comedian Eddie Murphy, also shared the lessons she's learned since her divorce.
"That I have a voice and don't be afraid to be yourself and express yourself and, you know, be you," she said, a tactic she now employs in her current relationship.
"Well it's like now, I'm doing what I want to do. It's like I don't want anything to hold me back from what I want to do now."
