Bobbi Kristina is engaged!

The daughter of late singer Whitney Houston is about to become a bride. Bobbi Kristina, 19, has revealed that she is engaged to boyfriend Nick Gordon. The news came during a promo for Bobbi Kristina's upcoming reality series, which focuses on her dealing with the death of her famous mother. Since the couple began dating after Whitney's death, controversy has swirled. Not only is Nick three years older than Bobbi Kristina, but he was also raised as a teenager by Whitney. The fact that the two started dating has been a lightning rod in the Houston family, and that topic will be addressed on the reality show. In any case, Bobbi Kristina's engagement should be happy news despite her age. Will it last? That's a tricky question to answer at this point. Here is a look at some other young stars to get engaged in 2012, and where their relationships currently stand.

Miley Cyrus

Hannah Montana is all grown up, and she has the bling to prove it. The 19-year-old former Disney star accepted the proposal from boyfriend Liam Hemsworth in June, and she couldn't be more thrilled. "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," she said at the time. The couple dated for three years before getting engaged, and Miley's parents are also on board with the pending nuptials.

Kailyn Lowry

Kailyn had a rough go of things on "Teen Mom 2." Her custody battle with former beau Jo was one of the biggest storylines of the season. However, fans will be happy to know that she has found love after the show. In September, 20-year-old Kailyn accepted the proposal of boyfriend Javi Marroguin. She tweeted, "Thank you all for being so supportive! No concrete wedding plans yet, but hopefully in the near future." According to reports, Kailyn's two-year-old son assisted on Javi's proposal.

Jenelle Evans

Kailyn isn't the only "Teen Mom 2" alum to get engaged in 2012. 20-year-old Jenelle, who was famous for her partying on the show, got engaged to boyfriend Gary Head in May. However, her situation is not nearly as happy. The couple called off the engagement shortly after that amid rumors of Gary's cheating, and that was only the beginning. An ugly battle over who has the rights to the engagement ring unfolded over Twitter shortly after the split, making this one of the more public celebrity splits of the year.
