Tyra Banks and John Utendahl Not Engaged

Tyra Banks took to Twitter on Monday to deny rumors she and millionaire boyfriend John Utendahl are engaged. Rumors about a possible engagement between Tyra Banks and John Utendahl surfaced earlier this week when the America’s Next Top Model host was spotted wearing a gold ring on her left hand at the Daytime Emmy Awards.


“Hearing about crazy rumors that I’m engaged,” Tyra Banks posted on her Twitter feed Monday. “Well, I’m not. The ‘RING’ is my high school class ring. It’s 10k gold and has zero diamonds. Ha!”

Looks like banker John Utendahl is not quite ready to make an honest woman out of Tyra Banks just yet. Meanwhile she’ll just have to content herself with that shiny new Emmy Award she took home this weekend. We guess that’s an acceptable consolation prize.

Tyra Banks Engaged to Millionaire John Utendahl?

Not only did model & TV personality Tyra Banks win a second Emmy this weekend, but she might just be engaged as well – to millionaire financier John Utendahl.


Talk show host and supermodel Tyra Banks landed her second Emmy Award this weekend for her daytime talk show. Tyra Banks is also the hostess of the popular reality TV show America’s Next Top Model.

“The Emmy means so, so much,” Tyra said after snagging gold again at the Daytime Emmy Awards. “Last year was important, it was so exciting but I was a little fearful we wouldn’t win this year.”

The 35-year-old supermodel’s huge smile at the Emmy Awards might not have all been about winning, however. It seems Tyra Banks may have something even more spectacular to grin about.

Tyra Banks was spotted out and about with banker boyfriend John Utendahl over the weekend. The couple has been dating for two years. Looking fabulous as usual, Tyra was also sporting a blingy new accessory – a big ring on her left hand. She was also wearing the ring at the Emmys. While it doesn’t look quite like a classic engagement ring, Tyra Banks and John Utendahl are notorious for keeping their relationship on the down low from the media.

A millionaire and a supermodel getting hitched – how… predictable.
