Michelle Williams Gets Engaged To Minister Chad Johnson
Michelle Williams, 37, is engaged to minister Chad Johnson, 40.
The two have been in a relationship for over a year but have kept it private. Williams posted a picture on Instagram of her running into Johnson’s arms after performing at Coachella with former Destiny’s Child members Beyoncé and Kelly Rolland. “I always wondered how our worlds would mesh. I always wanted to protect who you are, your ministry and platform because people are cruel, but you have covered me, prayed for me and told me that whatever stage I stand on to be a light!”
That amazing feeling of getting off the stage, running back to the dressing room and I see someone standing there waiting for me! I always wondered how our worlds would mesh. I always wanted to protect who you are, your ministry and platform because people are nuts and cruel, but you have covered me, prayed for me and told me that wherever I go, and whatever stage I stand on to be a light! Soooooooo sorry I jumped on you but I’m glad to know you have muscles to hold me! You so stronnnnnnnng! 😂😂 I’ve waited yeeeeeeears for someone who could come in to my world and be CONFIDENT and NOT insecure, love who I love and genuinely be there for people!! I LOVE YOU @chadjohnson77!!! ❤ #HoldOn #LoveIsComing #IPrayRealTrueGodlyLoveForEveryone #ThankYouJesus 📸: @parsons
The couple began dating July 2017 after meeting at a spiritual retreat that Johnson has run since 2006. Williams said she went there to “get a message of hope and restoration, rejuvenation – get connected to God,” she told People.
Johnson had always wanted a family. “The biggest desire in my life is to have a wife and kids,” he said and Williams’ is on the same page. Johnson said they are both in “very similar places on a personal level.”
Johnson spoke about the fact that they are an interracial couple. “I’m white, she’s black,” he said. “What a special time for our relationship to be on display in that respect with tension in the world and in our country.”
They are planning on getting married this summer.
