One can't deny that being engaged to a romantic partner while having a successful career lies among the list of goals in our lives.
Well, it looks like the famous radio personality and rapper, Angie Martinez has crossed both of those off the list! Along with her smooth running career, it has come to light that Angie is, indeed, engaged.
So, why not find out more about the details of the soon-to-be bride, Angie Martinez.
Angie Martinez On Her Way To Have A Husband:
Around early February 2016, reports came forth surrounding the town with the good news that the beautiful Angie Martinez is engaged. In an interview with Latina, while supporting the movie How To Be Single, Martinez shared that she was not single while also expressing that being single is fun and a man is not mandatory to be happy.
"I have to tell you something. I’m not single anymore and it’s fairly new but I was single for a long time in NYC. Well, I think the thing about being single is that there are other single women too. So there is a bonding that happens with other single women – there is certain support that you get from other single women and honestly, you don’t need a man to be happy. You could be perfectly happy in your life and great relationships and friendships and fun. If you’re young and you’re still exploring the world, you kind of should be single, so you could figure out who you are all the way first and mess up every now and then and do dumb things. But especially in this city, it’s such a fun city to be single in and you don’t have anyone to answer to. "
However, even though Martinez is said to be engaged, she has yet to disclose the identity and remaining details of her soon-to-be husband.
Some sources state that, prior to the engagement, Angie was in a short-term dating affair with the rapper, Q-Tip, in the year 1998.

Though the two didn't last long as a couple, they remained good friends.
Furthermore, she was in a relationship with the rapper Tamir/Nokio Ruffin of Dru Hill. Although the dating timeline of the couple remains unclear, some sources state that they dated each other around the 90's when Tamir was at the peak of his popularity.
Later in early 2003, speculations that Angie was pregnant were confirmed after she announced the good news during one of her live radio broadcast. Although Angie denied disclosing the identity of the baby daddy, it later came to light that the father was no other than Tamir.
On June 12, 2003, the former couple welcomed their son, Niko Ruffin.

In an interview with RapUp, in 2016, she talked about the influence of her pregnancy on her career, chiefly as a rapper.
"Number one, honestly, as much fun as it was, and I did feel like I was starting to get better and I could experiment with different beats, rhymes, or flows, the truth is that, by the second album, I was in my 30s and I was pregnant during my second album. So, if I was 20, I probably would have kept pushing because I would have had that type of energy and work ethic that it would have taken, but it was hard for me. It wasn’t something that came naturally like when you look at an artist like Nicki [Minaj] or Jay [Z], when they go in and spit it out and do two songs in one night. It took me seven nights to do one song, if that. It wasn’t something that came easy. It was really hard for me. As much as I liked the challenge, at that point in my life, it wasn’t worth it. I had a baby. I was doing radio. It was kind of like, “Am I gonna kill myself trying to chase this thing?” I just look at it as a period in my life where I was experimenting with a different piece of my creative side. I had a couple good records. It was cool. I got to travel, experiment, and I got a much clearer understanding and respect for the process of making music. Overall, it made me even better at my job. "
She has given up rapping professionally as of now. But during her tenure as a rapper, she earned a Grammy nomination and put on a much talked about performance of Ladies Night with other up-and-coming artists like Missy Elliot and Lil Kim.
On the other hand, Angie has always been on the top of her game on the radio. She has taken interviews with many top celebrities and prominent figures such as Jay Z, Mariah Carey, as well as the former President Obama, and Hillary Clinton.
