Kierra Sheard of 'The Clark Sisters' Gets Engaged to Boyfriend Jordan Kelly on Her Birthday
Kierra Sheard of "The Clark Sisters" is set to walk down the aisle as she got engaged to her boyfriend Jordan Kelly on her birthday.
Kierra Sheard announced the news of her engagement through a photo on Instagram, flashing her ring as she smiled next to her fiance, Jordan Kelly. She gushed about her husband-to-be being the man of her dreams, and how he is now her reality.
"You're everything I've always wanted. I can't wait to do life with you! Thank you for choosing me! You're an answer to my prayers. The man in my dream is now my reality."
A DOUBLE CELEBRATION
There was no better way to celebrate her engagement but during her birthday, where she was surprised with a gorgeous diamond ring. Jordan proposed to her in front of a yard, where he knelt down and popped the question.
Kierra also portrayed her own mom in the TV movie "The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel."

Prior to her engagement to Jordan, the 34-year-old actress was once engaged to Dr. Welton Smith IV, a pastor at the New Life Family Church in Detroit. After calling off their wedding, she worked on herself and did things differently.
THE SHEARD FAMILY
Kierra is the daughter of "The Clark Sisters" member Karen. Her mom married her dad Bishop J. Drew Sheard, and aside from her, they had another child named J. Drew II.
Her brother J. Drew is also in the entertainment industry like her mom and sister, being a producer and songwriter. While Karen and Kierra are focused on gospel music, Drew is more inclined to Hip-hop and R&B.
KIERRA'S PROFESSIONAL CAREER
Just like her mom, she has worked on gospel albums aside from being a talented actress. She's worked on projects like "Blessed and Cursed," and "The Love You Save." Kierra also portrayed her own mom in the TV movie "The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel."
At the time, the actress revealed she was honored to play her own mom in the film. Despite having a close relationship with her, she did not entirely rely on her mom to see how she can portray her best.
