Kaiser Chiefs' frontman Ricky Wilson, who was also a judge on BBC's talent show The Voice, is engaged to longtime girlfriend Grace Zito.
The happy news were confirmed by a spokesperson for the couple, who said: ‘They’re both very happy.’
The engagement was first reported by The Sun, who say a source revealed he popped the question on a romantic trip to Cornwall.
The pair don’t yet have children, but share a pet labradoodle called Norman Reedus, named after an actor from The Walking Dead.
The source said: ‘Ricky’s decided it’s time to put his rock ’n’ roll lifestyle behind him and settle down. They already have a little one – Reedus, their two-year-old labradoodle – and he thought it was about time he made things official.
‘He whisked Grace off on a romantic trip to Cornwall two weeks ago to properly charm her before asking if she would be his wife.’
The duo met on the set of BBC’s talent show The Voice, when Ricky was one of the judges, and started dating two years later, in 2015.
Despite keeping his personal life away from the spotlight, the musician often posts picture of him and Grace on his official Instagram account.
And seems like his fans were eagerly awaiting the cute couple to get engaged, as one commented in one of their most recent pictures: ‘You both look so very happy ~ at first glance I wondered if you had made an announcement 👒👠💄😁😊😁, I was sooooooooo excited for a split second, but no, not so … 😔. Come on Ricky, 🤐🤐🤐🤐💍🤐, just …. come on !! 😊 xXx ( I’ll keep trying @graceyzito , I’ll keep trying 😘 xXx )’.
Speaking about his relationship with now fiancé Grace, the 39-year-old revealed that it’s not always easy to make it work when it comes to romantic relationships.
He said last year, according to The Sun: ‘It’s really easy to quit, but it’s really hard to stay together.’
Before Grace and Ricky got together three years ago, the music star previously dated TV producer Lesley Williams.
The couple stayed together started dating in 2009 and stayed together for five years, until their relationship came to an end in 2014.
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
