Solange Knowles spends her birthday with boyfriend Alan amid rumours he proposed

It seems that Solange Knowles may have received an extra special birthday present for her 28th birthday on Tuesday – her boyfriend Alan Ferguson popped the question, according to website Media Take Out.

The Losing You singer spent her birthday with her video producer boyfriend, who she has been with for five years. While she hasn't commented on the report, Beyoncé's little sister did look very happy indeed in the photos she shared of her celebrations on Instagram.

Solange and Alan, 51, can be seen embracing in crystal clear waters on an idyllic beach, with golden sand and a boat completing the picturesque setting, with Solange beaming at the camera.

Another photograph shows the birthday girl balancing on the edge of a yacht in a bright yellow dress and matching sandals. Alongside the snap she wrote: "Today couldn't have been more perfect. I couldn't have smiled harder.

"Thank you for all of your lovely and wonderful wishes. They warmed my heart and I simply feel grateful for all of the love."

According to a report, Alan popped the question on Solange's birthday

Time will tell whether a marriage proposal was the cherry on the cake for Solange on her "perfect" birthday.

If the rumours are indeed true, this would be her second marriage. Solange wed her high school sweetheart Daniel Smith at the tender age of 17. They divorced four years later, after having a son named Daniel Julez together.

The singer recently opened up about the early marriage. "In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27," the singer said. "Just going through a marriage and a divorce - which I essentially did by 21 - will give you an insane amount of perspective on life," she told Harper's Bazaar earlier this year.
