Maya Jama has been spotted wearing a huge diamond on her ring finger after reports that the TV star, 27, became engaged to basketballer Ben Simmons, 25, over the festive period.

TV host Maya beamed as she was snapped enjoying a low-key stroll with her husband-to-be in Philadelphia on Monday.

The Bristol-born babe has been dating the star – who was previously in a relationship with Kendall Jenner – for almost a year now and the pair appear to be head over heels in love with one another.

Maya looked casual yet chic as she sported an oversized hooded sweater and some leggings for the relaxed outing.

She also covered up her nose and mouth with a face covering as she walked alongside basketball star Ben.

The pair appeared to be in deep conversation as they strolled along side-by-side – and Maya's huge sparkler was hard to miss.

The TV star gestured with her hands, making the size of the stunning emerald cut diamond sitting on her finger unmissable.

Ben, who looked on at Maya lovingly during the sweet exchange, carried a drink in one hand and a pair of trainers in the other in the latest snap of the newly-engaged couple.

The couple's rare sighting comes after The Sun reported that the Philadelphia 76ers player popped the question to the former Radio 1 DJ over Christmas.

Ben, who dated supermodel Kendall Jenner for over a year, "adores Maya and has fallen head over heels for her".

"He picked up the ring on Jewellers' Row in the diamond district of Philadelphia the day before he proposed," the source told.

"He chose the ring himself and felt he knew exactly what she would want. Maya said yes and they’re both thrilled."

Maya – who has been keeping a low profile on social media since the rumours emerged – spent Christmas at Ben's £3.7million mansion in Moorestown, New Jersey.

The Bristolian is now reported to "planning a permanent move to America" in order to be with her husband-to-be.

Maya first went public with the NBA player at Wimbledon 2021 after splitting from British rapper Stormzy in 2019.

Meanwhile, Ben enjoyed an on-off relationship with Keeping Up With The Kardashain's star Kendall, 25.

The two originally started dating in May 2018 but they then split at the end of the summer.

Following their breakup, the pair rekindled their romance, eventually getting back together in October 2019.

They lasted until May 2019, when they then decided to take a break before reconciling at the end of 2019.

Kendall and Ben then dated for another couple of months in 2020 until they finally called it quits for good.

Maya and Ben have yet to publicly comment on the engagement reports.
