She spoke out as she headed to work at a low-income apartment complex in Marina del Rey, California.
The mother-of-one had spent Monday at her Windsor Hills bungalow as the world learned of her daughter’s joyful engagement.
But on Tuesday Ragland went back to work as a wellness counselor for Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services – a Los Angeles-based organization specializing in treating substance abuse – heading for a low-income housing complex in Marina del Ray.
Dressed in a loose black dress, a patterned headscarf and stacked wedge heels, the therapist strode past waiting photographers with her head down but did briefly say that she was pleased with the engagement news.
Ragland had spent time with the couple before they were engaged, appearing in public at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games in Toronto at the end of September.
