Zeinab Harake and Filipino-American basketball player Bobby Ray Parks Jr. are about to get married, as the internet personality tearfully said yes to her partner’s marriage proposal.

Harake and Parks announced their engagement in a joint Instagram post on Sunday, July 7, which showed them standing at an undisclosed location where the phrase “Marry me” was spelled out, while what seemed like a nightscape of Metro Manila.


The post of the couple’s engagement, which was witnessed by their families and close friends, showed an emotional Harake hugging Parks who teared up as well.


“Y E S,” the internet personality captioned her post.

Meanwhile, Harake initially thought that she and Parks would attend a birthday party before she was escorted to the place where the basketball player popped the question, as seen on her vlog.

But when the couple arrived at the venue, the internet personality already knew that Parks would propose.

“I’m truly blessed to call you my best friend, my lover, and my biggest supporter. So, I hope that you feel the same way towards me. I want to continue to build a Christ-centered relationship in which I will lead and serve you [to] the best of my abilities,” Parks said in his proposal where he also recited a verse from the bible.

“Your genuine, loving, compassionate heart [is] the crown of your beauty. You and the kids are my home and I can’t imagine life without y’all… With that being said, I brought all of our friends, family, and loved ones here today to bear witness, and ask you one thing — Zeinab Harake, would you make me the happiest man in the world and marry me?” he continued.


A full video of the planning process was posted on Youtube.

In a separate post, Parks shared a closer look at Harake’s engagement ring which contains a pear-shaped diamond.

“Ain’t playin’ with your heart ‘cause that’s too much to lose,” he wrote.
