From the We Sure Hope this is True files: rumor has it that Queen Latifah and Jeannette Jenkins are planning to get married, joining a long list of Hollywood celebrities rushing to tie the knot in the wake of California's legalization of gay marriage. Latifah has been notoriously tight-lipped about her relationship with Jenkins, who she has been dating for five years, and while Cele|bitchy speculates that this may be to protect her high-profile advertising deals, we like to think that the Queen is just a private person, and doesn't need to have her business all over the news.
And yes, we are aware of the irony of reporting about the possible engagement of a celebrity who likes to keep her personal business personal, but we're just so happy for them; we see a lot of celebrities who get all caught up in the fancy Hollywood hype, particularly when a wedding is involved, and it's nice to see the opposite.
The couple are reported to be planning a small ceremony for family and close friends. Latifah has also talked publicly about her desire to adopt a baby; we are hopeful that this will be the beginning of a long and happy family life for her and Jenkins.
