Bobbi Kristina Brown confirms engagement to Nick Gordon

10/11/2012 by Olivia Allin

Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has confirmed her engagement to "adopted brother" Nick Gordon, after dodging rumors for months.

In a new clip from Lifetime's reality series, "The Houstons: On Our Own," featured on E! News, the 19-year-old is seen telling her family, "We're engaged!"

Brown's aunt Pat Houston responds to the announcement by telling the cameras it is "unacceptable." Her uncle Gary Houston also doesn't approve of the union, telling Gordon sternly, "No one knew that from a godson, you were going to turn into a boyfriend, no one knew that."

Brown and Gordon reportedly grew up together and Brown previously referred to Gordon as her "adopted brother." Although Whitney Houston never adopted Gordon, her brother Michael told ABC News that Gordon was "like a son" to Houston, who took Gordon in a decade ago after learning that his birth mother could no longer care for him.

Gordon previously denied the two were in a relationship after rumors that the two were engaged were sparked when Brown was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger on her left hand. The ring in question once belonged to her mother Whitney Houston, according to reports.

On August 8, Brown and Gordon got matching tattoos on their wrists in memory of Houston. The tattoos feature Houston's initials W and H surrounded by birds.

"Tat tat tatted YURP.. ;) now your truly ALWAYS with us mommy (: we love you@nickdgordon always&forever{<3}," Bobbi Kristina wrote on her Twitter page, linking to her instagram photo of the tattoo, on August 8. The following day would have been Houston's 49th birthday.

Houston died on February 11 at the age of 48 inside a hotel room at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, a day before the 2012 Grammy Awards. She was found in a bathtub and her death was ruled an accidental drowning, spurred by cocaine use and a pre-existing heart condition.

Houston made her last on-screen appearance in the remake "Sparkle" with "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks. It was her first role since the 1997 TV movie "Cinderella." The film opened in theaters on August 17. Bobbi Kristina and Gordon looked cozy at the film's premiere.

"The Houstons: On Our Own" is set to premiere on Lifetime on Wednesday, October 24. Watch a preview below.
