Rumours started last week that the expecting beauty queen Yendi Phillips and boyfriend, Daniel 'Chino' McGregor may have finally decided to tie the knot.

In previous interviews, Phillips spoke about the possibility of being married to Chino, insisting that she did not believe that one required a wedding in order to experience marriage and stating that she was already in a wonderful union with the recording artiste.

The speculation ballooned on social media after fans of the former Miss Jamaica spotted her sporting what looked like an engagement ring while hosting on Television Jamaica's morning show Smile Jamaica, It's Morning Time.

Over the weekend, another rumour stating that the beauty queen had gone into labour, while in Ocho Rios celebrating their engagement. She dispelled this on Twitter, saying that she was very much pregnant despite what all there was to say in the media.
