Bobbi Kristina is engaged! The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston is getting hitched to her long-time friend Nick Gordon at the ripe old age of 19. The news of the engagement comes just in time for the debut of her upcoming Lifetime television reality show, "The Houstons: On Our Own" which features the members of the late singer's family dealing with the aftermath of her untimely death earlier this year.
The news was revealed courtesy of a new clip for the show that premieres on October 24. At issue with the engagement is the unconventional relationship of the young couple. Gordon was reportedly informally adopted by Whitney Houston when he was twelve years old and the duo were basically raised like brother and sister. It wasn't until after her mother's death on February 11, 2012, that their relationship moved to the next level and they shacked up together in Atlanta.
With the news of the engagement, Bobbi Kristina jumps on a growing trend of Hollywood young 'uns planning to get married. Here are some of the young stars who have gotten engaged this year:
Miley Cyrus: The former Disney Channel star, 19, announced her engagement to Hollywood hunk, Liam Hemsworth, 22, in June 2012. The "Hannah Montana" star met the "Hunger Games" hottie while filming the film, "Last Song," in 2009. He popped the question in May, but wedding plans are on hold while she works on her upcoming album.
Avril Lavigne: The singer, 27, is set to take her second walk down the aisle when she marries Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. When the news of the engagement broke, it was who the groom was that got tongues wagging as they were able to keep their relationship on the down low for nearly six months. Of the proposal she says, "It was really natural, and we met in the studio and were friends for a while, and one of our last days in the studio was when he proposed, and it was super romantic and it had a lot of meaning behind it." She was previously married to Deryck Whibley before divorcing in 2009.
Jenni "JWoww" Farley: The "Jersey Shore" vixen, 26, is headed straight for the aisle when she marries longtime boyfriend Roger Matthews who popped the question in September 2012. Don't look for a traditional wedding for this bride, she'd much rather head to Sin City for an A-List bash.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi: The reality television bad girl, 24, has gone good before our eyes following the news of her engagement to Jionni LaValle in March 2012. Wedding plans are on hold for now while the couple adjust to becoming parents to baby Lorenzo.
