Tracey Edmonds’ recent picture has fans speculating about an engagement to her boyfriend of over five years, former NFL superstar Deion Sanders.
The TV producer/entrepreneur stepped out some days ago with her man and took to Instagram to share an adorable loved-up photo.
Deion looked dapper in a red tuxedo and black tie, resting a hand on Tracey’s thigh. The mom-of-two was equally glamorous in a black dress that featured side and front cutouts to reveal some cleavage.
Tracey, 51, gushed over her partner in the caption:
"#Aboutlastnight Got cleaned up to go to the #nflhonors with this handsome man @deionsanders right here! Check out his red tux! This man sets the bar SO HIGH on swagg and style!!”
Tracey wore her long tresses parted down the middle and accessorized with minimal jewelry. It was one piece of jewelry, however, that got fans talking in the comment section.

“Am I the only one who noticed that ring?” asked one social media user.
“Congratulations Sis,” chimed in another. “We see the ring, and we are loving it.”
A third fan commented:
“So glad to see you two together again, I know you both have crazy busy schedules and miles away from each other but glad Love always wins.”
Tracey and Deion started dating as far back as 2012, and even though both have been married multiple times before, the couple often gets the “When are you getting married” question.
In 2015, the sports analyst answered the question in an exclusive interview with “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.”
“I’m gonna marry real soon, once we get in the same city. I don’t believe in long-distance marriages. I could condone a long-distance relationship but there’s not gonna be a long-distance marriage.”
The 51-year-old has been married twice and has five kids from both relationships, but should he plan to go down that road again with Tracey, Deion has the approval of her ex-husband and father of her two sons, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
Babyface and Tracey met on set of his music video in 1990 and were married two years later. The marriage lasted for 13 years, during which their sons, Brandon and Dylan, were born. The TV personality filed for divorce in 2005.
In a 2013 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Babyface called Deion a “good guy,” and explained why he wishes the former athlete all the best with his ex-wife:
“I knew that Deion, Mr. Prime Time, seems like a nice guy, but he became a classy guy when he called me and said he didn’t want to meet my children until he sat down and had lunch or breakfast with me, so he knew me before he met my children.”
Neither Tracey nor Deion is yet to comment on the engagement rumors, but it appears many people will be happy to see them tie the knot.
