Maya Jama, rumours boyfriend Ben Simmons, proposed to Maya Jama over Christmas. She kept her hands closed during Saturday’s appearance on The John Bishop Show

Maya Jama gave nothing away regarding her rumoured engagement during her latest TV appearance.John Bishop Show on Saturday night.

“I ended up refereeing an twerk off and spoke about some other bits. It will be on ITV tonight, 9:30pm xxx.”
Speculation that Maya and Ben, the US basketball star, were engaged began on New Years Eve. There were reports that Ben, a Philadelphia 76ers player, got down on one knee while the couple celebrated Christmas at Ben’s Moorestown, New Jersey mansion worth PS3.7million.

The couple, believed to have only shared the happy news with close family and friends, made public their relationship earlier in the year.

According to a source, the starlets are close friends. The day before he proposed, he picked up the ring from Jewelers Row in Philadelphia’s diamond district.

“He picked the ring and knew exactly what she wanted. Maya agreed and they are both delighted.

They continued to say that the sports star was “nervous about asking for her hand in marriage” as she had rejected an ex’s proposal.

According to an insider, the happy couple also confirmed the news at a small gathering during the holiday season.

Maya has yet to confirm or disprove the reports, but she was photographed by Ben in Philadelphia earlier this month sporting a large diamond ring that experts valued at PS600k ($800k).

Representatives for Maya Jama were contacted by The Mirror for comment.

Last year, Maya and the NBA player made their relationship public at Wimbledon.
