Engagement Coming Soon For Nelly + Shantel?
In a DWTS interview, Nelly said, “I would not want my life to not have Shantel in it. We’ve been seeing each other for five or six years. Any time you can connect with somebody like that, it works out for the long run.” Asked if that meant a proposal was coming, Nelly answered, “We’re working towards it. When we know, I’ll tell you.”
