Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell Shows Off Massive Diamond Ring
Her reign as Miss America is over, but Betty Cantrell has a whole new reason to celebrate now — she’s engaged! The former Miss America announced the news at the 2017 event, just before handing the crown over to Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields.
“And now finally I can say my Fiance!” she wrote, alongside a photo of herself with her man, Spencer Maxwell. “To the man who let me be Miss America for a year, to the man who is moving to Nashville with me to help me achieve my dreams as a country music singer, to the man who selflessly lets me shine, to the man who never gave up on me, to the love of my life. Forever and always, your dreams are my dreams. I love you Spinny.”
Betty and Spencer Maxwell met in March 2015, six months before she was crowned Miss America. However, her duty as Miss America was her focus, especially as far as the public was concerned. Maxwell, a graduate of The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., is a deputy for the Monroe County Sheriff.
Now that Cantrell's reign is over, has handed off the crown, the couple is free to display their relationship!
