Michael Jordan is noticeably silent on the issue. Possibly because people haven’t forgotten his public disapproval of their relationship. But Marcus said that’s not the case.

When rumors of the engagement surfaced, Marcus was contacted by various family members including his dad, Michael, and his mom, Yvette Prieto. He even had a conversation with his sister who wanted to know if the news is “legit.”

Those aren’t the only people who contacted Marcus. Even jewelers contacted him offering their designs. And Marcus is interested, “I think it’s the tagline of our wedding – ‘It’s in the works.'” 

Marcus and Larsa might let fans in on the wedding

The ring talk intrigued Larsa and she asked if her boyfriend knew what she likes. Marcus sounded confident that he knew her preferences better than her. Though they disagreed on that, they reiterated they’re getting closer to a wedding.

Marcus has a solution though. “A multi-day event,” he suggested. It just proves he’s giving this serious thought. He also added, “As we get closer, we’ll start narrowing down all of the options. But anything is on the table. It’s all in the works.”
