Los Angeles - Drake wants to marry Rihanna.
The on/off pair recently rekindled their romance and after 29-year-old Drake's heartfelt admission at the MTV VMAs last week that he has been "in love" with Rihanna since he was 22, things have gotten extremely serious between them.
A source told E! News: "Drake is very committed to Rihanna. They are both mature and ready to commit now. Drake loves Rihanna so much and if it was up to him, he would marry her tomorrow.
"Things are different this time between them for the better. They want to make this work this time with each other."
Presenting the Work hitmaker with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs, Drake said: "She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old. She's one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life, I've looked up to her, even though she's younger than me. She's a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna."
On Instagram a few days later, Rihanna shared a picture of them together and wrote: "VMA2016 night was one that I would never forget!! I have the most incredible people in my life! My family, friends, loved ones, my fans, my team!!! All gifted beautiful spirits! @MTV team you were a dream to work with! Thank you to the beautiful @iamnaomicampbell @therealmaryjblige @traceeellisross for your kind words! @champagnepapi your speech was so touching and I love you for that! All in all....Best night ever!!! I'm a lucky girl!!! To God be the Glory! #RiRiVanguard (sic)."
And Rihanna, 28, also recently got a tattoo tribute to Drake.
She had a camouflage shark etched on her ankle, and the design is said to be a permanent reminder of a date they went on last month.
Drake took Rihanna to an aquarium in Toronto and bought her a toy shark as a souvenir, so she decided to have the tattoo as a permanent reminder of the trip.
According to TMZ, the former Degrassi star also got a tattoo.
The We Found Love singer's usual tattoo artist Keith 'Bang Bang' McCurdy etched the couple with their new inkings, and shared a picture of Rihanna's artwork on Instagram.
He wrote: "Camo shark for my dear friend @badgalriri. Also... I just found out you can zoom on IG- enjoy :).(sic)"
