Kierra Sheard from 'Clark Sisters' looked gorgeous as she posed with her fiancé, Jordan Kelly, for an engagement photoshoot that was featured in Essence magazine.
"Clark Sisters" star Kierra Sheard received the ultimate surprise on her birthday when her boyfriend, Jordan Kelly, got down on one knee in front of her family and friends.
The couple hasn't set an official date for the wedding. However, Sheard and Kelly are still fresh from celebrating the news of their engagement and honored their impending union with a photoshoot.
"I'm so grateful, emotional, and jittery about this man (@mrjordankelly) loving me and @essence featuring us!"
Kelly was styled in complementing blue ensembles while his bride-to-be chose a canary-colored dress for one look and a green tulle detailed jumpsuit for another. One gushed over the photo and commented:
"Um, this is only the engagement photos…ma'am I don't know if I'm ready for the wedding the way y'all just took my breath away."
David and Tamela Mann commented on their shared Instagram account and wrote, "beautiful sweetheart. Congrats y'all." As many people celebrated their Black love, one fan responded, "I see a power couple."
"My timeline has been blessed, admitted a fan. Another user applauded their outfits and said, "praise gawd for this bodied photoshoot." Tasha Cobbs also expressed her admiration for the photos and congratulated the couple on their engagement.

While her fans adored her engagement photo, Sheard admitted that she almost ended her career in music after dealing with a lot of backlash from record labels and organizers in the industry about her weight.
In a recent interview with Page Six, Sheard explained, "they basically said I looked like the Pillsbury doughboy and I shouldn't shoot full-body images. So every time they encouraged me to do shoots from the waist up."
Although she persevered through all the harsh criticisms she faced about her weight, Sheard admitted to Page Six that some of the negative experiences still haunted her today.
The gospel star has a lot to look forward to with the release of her self-titled album which came out in April. To top off her continued success, she recently closed down the BET awards during a memorable performance with her mother, Karen Clark-Sheard.
