NEW YORK, June 4 (UPI) -- La Toya Jackson
and longtime business partner Jeffre Phillips have gotten engaged.
Michael Jackson's 58-year-old sister broke the news about her upcoming wedding during a visit to Good Morning America on Wednesday where she showed off her 17.5 carat engagement ring.
Jackson appeared on GMA to promote the second season of her OWN reality show Life With La Toya, which will feature Phillips asking Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, for her hand in marriage.
While discussing her engagement on the show Jackson told ABC's Abbie Boudreau that the couple has yet to set a wedding date and that she's "always wanted to be a mother."
Life With La Toya returns to the small screen on June 7.
