Sumpter, who has been engaged to James for four years, hinted at a wedding celebration coming soon by saying she is ready now. The actress also said she wants to have a party once the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

The 40-year-old said everyone deserves a party given the tough times they have faced amid the pandemic. She explained that her family is getting older, and some family members died due to COVID-19 complications.

Hence, more than ever, she is more about getting family and friends together for a celebration, which to her is life. Sumpter finally revealed that she and James would plan their wedding this year and have it next year.

Sumpter and James met on the set of the Oprah Winfrey Network television series, "The Haves and the Have Nots." They share a four-year-old daughter, Ella-Loren, who they welcomed in 2017.

Sumpter further revealed that the engagement ring was burning a hole in her fiancé's pocket before he proposed.

Sumpter and James also got engaged in 2017 after their daughter's birth. She announced the news during an episode of "The Real," taking the time to reveal the sweet way James proposed to her on Christmas Day.

According to her, James did many amazing things, after which she went for a little hunt in the house. While going on the hunt, she thought he was about to propose to her.

However, when the hunt ended, she discovered a Peloton bike he bought for her. She found the gift awkward and told him it was cool. What she did not realize was that there was a cooler surprise waiting for her around the corner.

James pulled out a letter from behind Ella, who was then a newborn baby, and told Sumpter that their daughter had something to say to her.

She described the letter as a piece of beauty. After she read its contents, James got down on one knee and proposed to her. The actress described it as a simple and awesome proposal.

Sumpter further revealed that the engagement ring was burning a hole in her fiancé's pocket before he proposed. Hence, he wanted to do it then. Afterward, they were glad he did.

The actress's fans would be looking forward to their wedding. Hopefully, like the proposal, it would be an awesome celebration.
