The Basketball Wives star and executive producer, 46, said “yes” to a proposal from her boyfriend, Pastor Keion Henderson, on Nov. 11 after nearly two years of dating, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

“This was one of the most magical and special days of my life, being someone that had never officially been proposed to — like no down on one knee and asked ‘will you marry me’ moment,” Shaunie says in a statement to PEOPLE. “And honestly I’m the person that thought I would never in my life experience a love like this. Everything about that night was incredibly amazing.”

She continues, “I wouldn’t change a single thing. As a matter of fact, I wish I could experience it over and over again. Keion is an extraordinary man of God. He’s wise, he’s supportive, he’s so loving and attentive. He loves me and my children in a way that has changed my life and my heart. He makes me want to be better every day. And I pray that I do the same for him. This love is FOREVER and I’m honored and overjoyed to do forever with him.”

In a statement of his own, Henderson tells PEOPLE: “I’ve never been more loved than I am right now.” “I’ve never met a more supportive person in my life. There is an inseparable connection that is undeniable between Shaunie and I,” he says. “I am unwilling to let anyone else occupy her space. The love and respect we share for each other contribute to our ever-evolving humility and growth.

Which ultimately makes us more like God. Who wouldn’t want a spouse that makes you more like The Creator? She simply brings out the best in me and wants the best for me. Any love that accomplishes all of that nature is worth pursuing. Our engagement is the beginning of a new day.” The couple got engaged on a tropical island at 11:11 p.m. The 11/11 motif has been “a meaningful symbolism and point of connection” for Shaunie and Henderson, her rep says.

Taking over Twitter as VH1iNFO was the start of my career. After gaining over 27,000 followers, I got into podcasting. Using Blogtalk Radio as a platform. I created "Have a Seat Radio" and it took off from there. Have a Seat radio had over 100K listeners across the board? Interviewed Reality Stars, Musicians, Professional backup dancers. I was joined by Jeff Lewis who is the CEO of itsonlyentertainment.com and Tori Bleu who was a local Atlanta artist and well connected to the industry. Our show went viral several times and ended up on People.com, Bossip.com, And plenty of huge websites. Hip Hop Weekly Magazine eventually came to us for an interview and featured us in one of their magazine issues.
