The lovebirds have been engaged for two years.
In 2020 she said, ‘This is the first time I’ve dated someone so close to my age!’
Her husband-to-be is 72-years-old. ‘We know the same songs and we’ve lived through a lot of the same things,’ added the catwalk queen who lives with her fiancé in Rancho Mirage, California.

‘Just finding the love of my life at this point in my life has been amazing,’ she told People.
She said Brian, a financier, is a trailblazer just like she was.
‘As I was breaking boundaries in the fashion industry, he was doing the same on Wall Street,’ said the beauty.
The proposal happened all of a sudden, she said, when they were in Palm Springs with family.
No ring, no problem: She did not seem to have her ring on her left hand

‘My older sister Sheilah was there and she said to Brian, “I didn’t hear you give my sister an answer when she asked you to marry her,”‘ Johnson stated.
‘And he said, “I have answered her. I have asked her to marry me. And she said, No. Besides that — I don’t have a ring.”‘
Then Brian’s mother ‘took off her wedding ring and passed it down the table till it got to Brian and he got down on one knee,’ she added.
‘I was sobbing uncontrollably and he said, “Will you marry me?” and I said yes!’
Johnson took the ring off to returns it to his mother, but she told her to keep it on for the rest of the day.

The proposal took her aback.
‘I was like how the heck did that happen? I was saying I’m never going to get married again,’ she said.
She has been wed to real estate agent Billy Potter and then music producer Danny Sims, with whom she has daughter Anansa.
When it came time to buy her a ring, she said she would rather have a house than a diamond.
