Chaz Bono is putting a ring on his longtime boo:
The “Dancing with the Stars” contestant is seen presenting an engagement ring to long-time girlfriend Jennifer Elia during a preview clip for “Being Chaz,” a one-hour special that chronicles the couple following Bono’s gender transformation surgery. “I wanted to pick a special place to give you your birthday present, and I hope you like this,” Bono says, standing with Elia atop Seattle’s space needle before popping out the diamond ring.
“Wow, it’s gorgeous,” Elia says, accepting the rock. “Thank you so much. It’s stunning,” she adds. “It’s huge.” “Being Chaz,” a follow-up to the Emmy-nominated documentary, “Becoming Chaz,” is set to air at 8 E.T. Sunday on OWN. Popping the question has been a long time coming for Bono, 42, who in May revealed on “Piers Morgan Tonight” that he and Elia had plans to wed “within a year.”
“We’ve been engaged actually for two years,” he said, explaining that the two had decided to put wedding plans on hold as he underwent his gender transformation. The couple celebrated their sixth anniversary together in August. “When you have a partner who’s happy in their skin and happy in general, not depressed and feeling completely in the wrong body, it changes everything,” Elia told Morgan.
Awwwww, how nice for Chazzy-poo and his boo!
