Long gone are the days of calling your friends on the phone or having your publicist release an official statement. Now with social media seemingly becoming everyone’s first line of communication, it has become THE way of getting your news out quick, easy, and to a large number of people at one time!

Well earlier today via Instagram, Gospel darling Damita Haddon, announced she is engaged to her new beau and photographer, Reuben Chandler.


If you follow Damita on the social picture site Instagram, this should come as no surprise, as the two have been seen together all over each other’s profiles for some time now. They definitely haven’t been in hiding.

As everyone probably knows by now, Damita was previously married to Gospel singer and newly turned reality star, Deitrick Haddon, for over 12 years, who was very public about their breakup and even alluded to accusations as one of the reasons why their marriage ended involved popular Gospel artist, Isaac Carree.

Throughout the widely scrutinized divorce, Damita remained decidedly quiet.

It appears that both parties have moved on, as we saw displayed on the first season of Oxygen’s hit show, “Preacher’s of LA,” where we met Deitrick’s new wife, Dominique Haddon, the mother of his two baby girls. And now with Damita’s upcoming nuptials, it looks like that chapter will be officially closed for good!

Congrats to Damita and Rueben!
