Here are the stories that Abbie Cornish shared on Valentine’s Day that revealed her relationship with Altamimi.
The story of Adel’s life is really heart-breaking. He was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq. As he grew up, his destiny made him a recruit of U.S. Marines. He was contracted by the U.S military to drive convoys.
Unfortunately, along with his friends, Adel was captured and held hostage by Al-Qaeda.
Altamimi witnessed the horrible act of his cousin and close friend being decapitated. According to Entertainment Tonight, he was about to meet the same fate as them but fortunately, U.S. Marines broke through the Al-Qaeda base and rescued Altamimi just before he was to be executed.
Now Adel lives in Los Angeles and works as a fitness trainer at the Unbreakable MMA gym. Gym members list includes the names of several celebrities, former combat veterans, and ex NFL stars.
Some of the celebrities that come to Unbreakable MMA gym are Wiz Khalifa, Demi Lovato, and Chris Pratt.
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has a nice friendship with Adel Altamimi.
Back to the engagement of Cornish and Altamimi, here’s the engagement ring.
The beautiful ring appears to be a 3.0-3.5 carat round cut diamond, set with a split shank cushion outline halo setting.
The ring appears to be a 3.0 – 3.5 carat round cut diamond, set with a split shank cushion outline halo setting. Here is a lookalike on James Allen.
The value of the ring is approximately $115,000 on James Allen, likely closer to $250,000 from a traditional retailer.
Abbie’s ring is a fantastic choice, giving the wearer optimal diamond brilliance from the round cut diamond while still displaying the overall shape of a cushion thanks to the halo. The split shank adds a unique touch and of course, gives it some extra sparkle.
We congratulate the couple on their engagement. What are your thoughts about this? Do share in the comments below.
