Cute Couple: Meet the Lucky Man Set to Wed Misty Copeland

Their first dance will be lit.

Published June 6, 2016

Everyone's favorite ballerina is getting ready to tiptoe her way to the altar.

According to the New York Post, Misty Copeland and her longtime boyfriend, Olu Evans, will tie the knot in a summer wedding.

"He’s a super-nice guy. They’re an incredible couple," a source close to the couple told the tabloid's Page Six section Sunday. "They’re getting married in July."

Copeland and her boo, a lawyer, actually met 12 years ago while dancing at a New York City night club.

And you could say that their matchmaker was none other than Taye Diggs, who is Evans's cousin and encouraged him to talk to Misty. Good going, Taye!

Olu has been with Misty all the way through, including when she made history last summer by becoming the first African-American female principal dancer in the American Ballet Theater's 75-year history.

Last year was also the time when Olu reportedly got down on one knee and popped the question.

Check out some other photos of the cute couple.

Yes, their first dance is going to be something of legend. Congrats!
