ENGAGEMENT PHOTO FAB: NBA Baller Dahntay Jones & Fiancé Valeisha Butterfield Get OFFICAL!

Maybe 2 times a charm for Valeisha ButterfieldWe told you before the WEEN chair and daughter of U.S. Congressman G. K. Butterfield and N.C. State Representative Jean Farmer – Butterfield (and BFF of "Love & Hip Hop" chick Emily B.) is now engaged to NBA baller Dahntay Jones.  And they've just released their official engagement photo ahead of their summer wedding.

 

Pic and deets about the couple inside...

Marrying a baller seems even more the thing to do these days.  Valeisha was at one point engaged to rapper Game, but that un-surprisingly didn't work out.  And she's also the ex-girlfriend of BET's Terrence J.

Now, the Indiana Pacers star and Valeisha are getting married at her family's estate in North Carolina this summer.  And they have this fab new engagement photo to boot.

The bride-to-be served in the Obama Administration from 2009 – 2011.  And she's also the co-founder and chair of the Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN).

The groom-to-be is a New Jersey native, graduate of Duke University.  He's also the founder of the Dahntay Jones Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to the empowerment of youth.

The twosome snapped their cute engagement photo during a recent trip to Antigua.  Congrats!

Always thought Dahntay was

Always thought Dahntay was very handsome. Other than basketball, I know nothing about either. Wish them the best.

Wow...this is what the

Wow...this is what the internet has given birth too. A bunch of jealous no life folks with so much to say about folks they don't even know. Good luck to the engaged couple and thanks for giving my island of Antigua free advertisement..

So lets just tell the truth

So lets just tell the truth for a second, some of you know and others don't have a clue. Dahntay was in a relationship with a girl from Denver and was cheating on her with V. He has 3 kids (that we know of) and 3 different "baby mommas". The only kid he sees on a regular is his son and his two daughters he doesn't have time for them because he's too busy trying to pretend he's someone important. She's dumb as rocks to not even care about his kids and how he treats them. Shit is written all over the wall but all she does is turn her back. Not that i'm surprised at all but this relationship is based off NOTHING but lies and both are non fucking factors. They deserve each other....Good luck and blessings are needed! Can't wait to see the weeding pictures! God bless you both!!!!

What is the hell is wrong

What is the hell is wrong with black people and these stupid names. What the hell is a vanteisha, or however the hell she spells it, and dahntay? I am surprised that she is from educated parents...I would have guessed her, and his, parents are hoodrats. Geesh, enough with these stupid names, people! Enough!

Wow... Okay... so I know

Wow... Okay... so I know Valeisha on a personal level....she's my cousin. Her father is NOT white. He did not migrate from Bermuda. Her mother is black. Yes, she grew up in a prominent black family but so what?? Haters only hate because you have something they wish they could!

K and my dad are cousins

K and my dad are cousins also, and ever since I can remember we've never been close G.K, Valeisha, or her sister because it was like an unspoken factor that they were "too good". Being raised in an educated home with money shouldn't make you feel better than anyone. I've always wanted to know this side of the family more, but never felt "worthy" enough to reach out. When I heard she was engaged to The Game, I was like "wow, that's my cousin", so it doesn't surprise me that she married this gay lookin dude cuz he's a baller. I mean, that's not hate either, it's just me as an independent woman much rather wanting to be able to stand on my own 2 feet without my parents or a man's name or bank account to be my foundation. Anyway, I do wish them the best. They are married and what God put together, let no man put asunder. Best wishes to "The Joneses"
