Are congratulations in order for former Nickelodeon stars Cree Cicchino and Jaheem Toombs? On Friday, February 14, fans were shook when the pair posted a series of romantic photos on social media and announced that they were engaged. Hours after Jaheem “proposed,” Cree announced that the entire engagement was just a joke!
“But when I’m way up here, it’s crystal clear,” the 18-year-old captioned his seemingly romantic Instagram post, which included a photo of him down on one knee in front of the castle in Disneyland.
Cree echoed his sentiment with another line from the Aladdin song, “A Whole New World,” and captioned her post, “Now I’m in a whole new world with you.”

…now I’m in a whole new world with you ✨ Update : Definitely NOT engaged! Apologies for the confusion😂 We thought it would be fun to take some fake little proposal pics in front of the castle at Disney, on Valentines Day. We are the best of friends and love each other very much! But we can happily confirm we are NOT actually engaged. 🖤 With Love, Cree and Jah
Naturally, fans were super confused because they didn’t even know the Game Shakers actress and 100 Things To Do Before High School actor were dating. Nonetheless, their famous friends and Instagram followers were quick to leave congratulatory comments on both stars’ photos.
The pair’s fellow Nickelodeon alum Lizzy Greene also sent a sweet message and said, “Can I be the flower girl?”
Lilimar Hernandez was also on board with the apparent engagement and commented, “The 100 Things [To Do Before High School] X Game Shakers crossover episode we all needed.”
Hours after they posted the original photos, Cree edited her Instagram caption and clarified to her followers that she wasn’t actually engaged to Jaheem.
“Definitely NOT engaged! Apologies for the confusion,” she explained. “We thought it would be fun to take some fake little proposal pics in front of the castle at Disney, on Valentine’s Day. We are the best of friends and love each other very much! But we can happily confirm we are NOT actually engaged. With Love, Cree and Jah.”
