Former The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne McCann is engaged.
The reality TV personality, 31, announced the news on Instagram by sharing a photo of herself in a passionate embrace with her new fiance, property developer Lorri Haines.
The picture, taken in the French resort of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, also showed off her new diamond engagement ring.
McCann captioned the post: “So happily ever afters do exist. I cannot wait to do forever with you baby.”
In his own post, Haines added: “She said yesssss.”
The couple have reportedly been in a relationship since January this year.
Soap star Gemma Atkinson and fellow Towie cast members Lauren Goodger and Mario Falcone were among those sending their congratulations to the couple.
Falcone wrote: “Congratulations Fernita! Very happy for you.”
McCann was previously in an on-off relationship with her Towie co-star Charlie Sims for six years.
She shares a four-year-old daughter with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins, who was given a 20-year jail sentence in December 2017 for carrying out an acid attack in a packed nightclub.
Sixteen people suffered chemical burn injuries and three people were temporarily blinded in the attack.
