Bobbi Kristina Brown likes to keep a little something to remember her mom Whitney Houston by.
The late pop star's only child has been wearing a big ring, but despite earlier speculation, Brown isn't actually planning to walk down the aisle with her "adopted brother/boyfriend" Nick Gordon, 22.
Her rep tells PEOPLE the pair are not engaged.
And a source adds, "She is just wearing her mom's ring."

The eyebrow-raising relationship between Whitney Houston's daughter and the man raised by the singer as a son may have gone one big, baffling step further.
Just a little over a month after Houston died, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, was spotted with a ring on her engagement finger following days of very public PDA with Nick Gordon.
One source tells PEOPLE, "Yes, they are engaged, but the family is trying to coax her away from it. "
Another source says, "Nick asked Krissi about a week ago to marry him" and that she's wearing a ring that once belonged to her mom. But the source doesn't know if Brown said yes.

The Twitter posts and PDA-filled paparazzi photos have certainly raised eyebrows.
Ever since Whitney Houston's death, daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and a man described in media reports as Bobbi's "adopted brother," Nick Gordon, have had something going on.
The day after Brown's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired March 11, Brown, 19, cozied up with Gordon, 22, at a Starbucks in Atlanta.
They have also been spotted out and about in the city hugging, kissing and holding hands – most recently while grabbing pizza in Atlanta on March 13. And PEOPLE has learned that they are living together in Houston's house.

The night after Whitney Houston died, her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown could not bring herself to sleep in her mother's Atlanta mansion.
That all changed the next morning.
"I woke up and I heard her say, 'All right, come home now,' " Brown told Oprah Winfrey in a TV special Sunday night. "And when I came back home, I felt humble, I felt okay."
The singer's only child, 19, says she's now comforted by the spirit of her mother, who died last month at age 48.

Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, will inherit everything from the late singer's estate, based on instructions in Houston's will.
Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, the father of Bobbi Kristina, gets nothing.
Houston, who died last month at age 48, left all of her money, property, clothing and personal effects to her only child, according to the document dated and signed in 1993, the year Bobbi Kristina was born.

Bobbi Kristina's first interview since the death of her mom Whitney Houston is set for Sunday, but members of the 19-year-old's family have concerns about the timing of the one-on-one chat with Oprah Winfrey.
"There is still no resolution and there has been nothing concrete on the cause of [Whitney's] death, and they were hoping for that," a Houston family friend tells PEOPLE. "There were members of the family who weren't keen on [the interview] going down at this time."
The insider says some of Whitney's close relatives wanted her to hold off on speaking publicly this close to her mother's death. "There are people who just want her to stay out of the limelight for a while," says the friend. "This is a little girl who just needs some time."

Four days after Whitney Houston was laid to rest, her grieving daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, is back home in Atlanta.
"She's doing okay," says a source close to the family. "She's still obviously got a lot to deal with but she's doing a little better each day, and being back home in Atlanta seems to be a good thing."
Brown, 18, had been in Los Angeles with her mother when the pop star died unexpectedly. Brown was later hospitalized for an emotional breakdown. In the days surrounding her mother's Feb. 18 funeral, she was comforted by many family members, including her grandmother, Cissy Houston, as well as her Uncle Gary and Aunt Pat.
