Here’s what you need to know about her.

They were first spotted on April 9 at Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood.

At that time, a source told E! News, “They are 100 percent in love. They have been dating for a while.”

Diggs’ first official red carpet appearance with his new lady came on June 29 at the BET Awards.


2. She Was Married to an NFL Player

She tied the knot with Ralph Brown, who played with the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns and the Arizona Cardinals.

The video above shows the couple as they prepared for their 2010 wedding day.


3. She Has 2 Kids

Smith Brown has two children with her ex husband, so that may make her relationship with single dad Diggs a little easier.
He has a son, Walker, born in 2009, with Mendel.

In a recent interview with Wendy Williams, he said:

…but these days I’m a single dad so if I see somebody it’s like, ‘Do you have kids? He’s out of diapers yet?’ I literally reached in my pocket the other day and brought out two pacifiers. It’s just a different game.

Photographer Jolie Anne did a shoot for Smith and her then husband, Brown when their daughter was born.

Jolie Anne wrote this about the experience:

When I was contacted by Amanza Smith to photograph her absolutely beautiful belly, along with her fiancee, Ralph Brown of the Arizona Cardinal’s, I was so excited! Amanza was the perfect model and so fun to work with. I so wish I had that body when I was pregnant.


4. She Was a Pro Cheerleader

She went to Indiana State University, moved to Indianapolis, and became a professional cheerleader for the Indianapolis Colts


5. She Was a Suitcase Model on ‘Deal or No Deal’
