“I’ve been on the road. I just got home, and so it’s really going to be now that’s the time for me to sit down and think about what I want,” Richie says in an interview set to air Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Asked if they’ve set a date for the nuptials, she replies: “Not yet, but soon.”
The couple have two kids: daughter Harlow, 2, and son Sparrow, 6 months.
Richie, whose father is the legendary singer-songwriter Lionel Richie, also reveals to DeGeneres that she was in a rap group when she was 8 years old – and, after some coaxing, performs a rap for Tuesday’s broadcast.
