In the chat which went down at Showtime's Emmy Eve Party at the Sunset Tower Hotel, the actress replied “Oh no” when asked if the ring was an engagement from the comedian.

Oh, and by the way, Echikunwoke did appear at the event in some really daring gown – a semi-sheer mesh number with her hair pulled back to accentuate her striking features.

“Am I going to get in trouble for this?” she asked, smiling.

“This right here is my alleged engagement ring, which is obviously not an engagement ring so just an FYI. It's a pearl. It's not even a diamond."

So, the air has been cleared. Chris Rock is yet to put the ring on it.

While we wait for the news, though, Echikunwoke continues to speak highly of her boo, “What can I say? I have a boyfriend,” she said.

“He's a comedian. He's funny [Oh, yeah we know]. He's really wonderful. He's a very dreamy guy, and I'm a lucky girl." She concluded.

Just in case you do not really know who she is, Megalyn Echikunwoke is a Nigerian-American actress [her father is Igbo].

She and Chris Rock went public with their relationship at Clive Davis' 40th annual pre-Grammys gala in earlier in February 2016.
