Babalwa Mneno is engaged.

The former runway model and socialite is reportedly engaged to a prominent African businessman who lives in Miami, Florida in America.

Mneno allegedly spends more time outside the country travelling with the businessman.

The model who is cagey about details of her engagement has revealed that she got her Bulgari ring on her birthday in November last year.

Mneno said: “Look, all I can say is that I’m happy and there are future plans. My ring came with a watch and bracelet and I’m loving them.

“There was a time when I wanted to wear the shortest skirt because I believed that my legs were nice but it’s now time for me to grow and become a businesswoman.”

Mneno says she's finalising details for her lingerie and swimwear lines which, according to her, are between Victoria's Secret and La Senza.

The beauty is also set to launch a hair salon called  Black Pearl Lifestyle and Hair Lounge in April.

She says the salon will offer first-class treatment in a relaxing lounge where people can get massages while waiting for their stylist.

The model has dated a string of famous men including sports anchor Robert Marawa.
