When we first broke the story about the couple being an item, a couple of our fans were giving us the side eye due to Chid’s response he posted on his IG page at that particular time. A couple of weeks later, Chid posted about how much in Love he is with the supermodel turned activist.
Yesterday, Georgie posted photos which seem to be traditional engagement photos of Chid asking her to marry him. This is one of the best proposals we’ve seen on the internet. This morning, Chid literally gush about his Love for his wife-to-be and we had to share their entire story with you all. I’m literally like in my awwww… moment right now. Okay, enough about my emotional breakdown. Get to know who they are before reading about their engagement story Chid shared this morning on Facebook.

“With so much gratitude in our hearts for our ancestors, friends, and families, Georgie and I are happy to announce that we are engaged. We feel a lot of energy right now from my great-grandfather, Chief Henry Burphy who helped bring the Vai people and Grand Cape Mount into the Republic of Liberia, from his daughter Hannah Burphy, who grew up in the Executive Mansion with the Barclays and was such a huge influence on the trajectory of my family, and from the long list of Badiel chiefs through Georgie’s grandfather (Badiel means panther in Georgie’s language because her tribe is known for hunting with panthers – side note, wouldn’t mess with these brothers). It was such a pleasure to get to share this day with Georgie’s maternal grandmother who is my new inspiration for living the good life. And we are so happy that at 101, her maternal grandfather could join us and give his blessing. We are extremely excited for our future with all of you. We plan to be married next year in a small ceremony in New York. G-d first, Peter Jallah second.
Now view their engagement photos with a couple of sweet side notes… awwww… relationship goals everywhere!
We’ll like to congratulate the couple on their engagement. You two look so happy in love. Georgie, thank you for being a solid rock for our brother. Looking forward to your wedding and more beautiful babies. Yay! We’re glad we broke the relationship story.
Let’s share your story with the world.
