Erykah Badu seems to have finally found the man of her dreams. In a recent Instagram post, she gushed over her boyfriend, JaRon Adkison, introducing him to her fans as "my guy."
The 50-year-old record producer, Erykah Badu, and her beau, JaRon Adkison, commonly known as JaRon the Secret, recently became Instagram official, and her fans are loving it.
In the recent posts on Badu's Instagram, she treated her fans to beautiful photos of the two in various settings, including at home and in nature, but what caught the fans' eyes was a photo of the couple wearing matching rings on their fingers.

The rings have sparked rumors of the lovebirds walking down the aisle soon. While some fans hope to hear wedding bells soon, others wonder whether the "Love Of My Life" singer is trying to hint to her fans that she's already engaged.
However, she is clearly enjoying her new beau. This is proven by the large smile on her face in all their photos together.

Finally, finding love with Adkison is a breath of fresh air. The star has dated before, with some of her relationships ending badly. One such relationship is with rapper Common.
The two started dating back in 2000. The relationship, however, ended after only two years, and Common was devastated.
Opening up to People about that period of his life, the "Glory" singer recalls having been so heartbroken he could barely eat. He is, however, quick to add that it was never Badu's fault they broke up and says the relationship just stalled.
A MOTHER OF THREE
In her recent posts, Badu alluded to the idea of raising their blended family together with Adkison. The statement is about her being a mother of three, all from different fathers.
The "You Got Me" singer welcomed her first child after she got into a relationship with rapper André 3000 of OutKast. The two began dating in 1995 and had their son, Seven Sirius, in 1997.
The relationship lasted two more years, after which the couple went their separate ways in 1999. After their split, Badu released a hit single named "Ms. Jackson," which was inspired by André 3000's then relationship with Badu and her mother.
The single became number one on Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award. Badu shares her second child, daughter Puma Sabti Curry, with Texas-based rapper The D.O.C.
The "On & On" songstress welcomed her third baby, Mars Merkaba Thedford, with her boyfriend of five years, rapper Jay Electronica.
