Diddy's ex Cassie boasts growing baby bump, reveals engagement to Alex Fine
Cassie is celebrating another year around the sun by flaunting her growing belly in her "birthday suit" and announcing that she's engaged to boyfriend Alex Fine.
The 33-year-old mom-to-be shared three photos from her maternity photo shoot to social media on her birthday. The first in the series shows Cassie sitting cross-legged on a rock with waves crashing behind her and her hair flowing down her body. She's also pictured in a black-and-white photo serving fierce looks in stilettos, and another photo shows her perched atop a rock like a mermaid.
She captioned the photos with "birthday suit" and a number 33 with a celebratory emoji.
Shortly after sharing the photos, Cassie posted a video and two photos revealing she was engaged.
"I love you best friend. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you," she captioned a photo of her and Fine.
This marks the "Me & U" singer's first child with Fine, whom she began dating in December after splitting from her on-again, off-again beau Sean “Diddy” Combs, earlier in the year. She and Fine made their relationship Instagram-official in December, when Cassie posted a photo of her and Fine kissing.
“Can’t wait to meet our baby girl," Cassie wrote on Instagram, captioning a series of stylish shots photos of her and Fine. "Love You Always & Forever.”
Fine went long with his Instagram tribute, penning a "Letter to Cassie."
In it, he wrote, "I promise you that I will do every single thing in my power to support you and help you. I promise that you will never be alone. I promise that you will be loved beyond expectation and we will show our children how to be in a healthy relationship. I promise to always come home with a great attitude and give our children and you undivided attention. I promise to always keep you and the child first nothing comes before you."
He continued, "I promise you will be showered in kisses and hugs every single day. I promise that I will be the best father/baby daddy You two are my greatest loves I have and will ever have. I cannot wait for the rest of our lives together and to raise a beautiful happy child in our beautiful happy life."
Neither Cassie nor Diddy commented on rumors about their breakup that circulated in last fall, with the 2018 Met Gala marking the couple's last public appearance together.
The music mogul did congratulate Cassie and Fine on their growing family by sharing a message to Instagram.
"I wish you all nothing but love and happiness," he wrote.
Diddy has spent much of the year away from the spotlight following the tragic death of his former longtime girlfriend Kim Porter, who died in November.
