When Digi Olisa formally proposed to Cumbo with a beautiful diamond ring, she didn’t hesitate to respond when she said “yes” to his declaration of love.
Speaking with reporters who were covering the Met Gala, Digi Olisa said “You know, it’s always like trying to wait for the right time. So, when is the right time considering everything that’s going on worldwide? So, I was just like, ‘Today we’re going to make it happen.’”
Cumbo, who was looking at her new fiancé lovingly, added “You wait for this moment your whole life almost and for it to be right here, it was everything that I thought it would be,” she said.
Her Met Gala engagement was also a full circle moment of sorts for Cumbo, as she revealed that she interned at the museum when she was 15 and got to attend her first Met Gala. “And now I’m coming back with my now husband as the commissioner of the department of cultural affairs,” she said.’
Congrats to the happy couple!
