Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton are reportedly engaged to be married after dating off/on for five years.
The former Pussycat Doll accepted the British F1 racing champion’s proposal after turning him down several times before.
The couple, who got back together late last year, will be living at Lewis Hamilton’s Switzerland mansion after a summer wedding in August.
Lewis is trying to keep his happy news under wraps but is thrilled. There were rumors late last year Lewis had purchased an engagement ring. It looks like that may have been true!
An insider said, “He got down on one knee and Nicole finally accepted. The plan is they are going to live together in Switzerland and travel together when Lewis is racing. Of course, this means her career will have to take a back seat for a while but she is ready to support him on the track.”
The source adds, “It is the ideal plan for the both of them and will hopefully lead to a big summer wedding in August when Lewis has a three-week break from his F1 schedule.”
Lewis, 29, recently shared a picture of himself and Nicole together on a holiday in Italy. Hamilton even called her “wifey” when he captured a photo of them together in the Sistine Chapel.
Hamilton just took the pole position during a qualifying race in Melbourne on Saturday ahead of Australia’s Grand Prix on Sunday.
Nicole couldn’t hold back her excitement, tweeting, “Congratulations @LewisHamilton So proud of u 4 taking pole position! First race of the season! @f1 #AustralianGP Race ur heart out babe! xo (sic)”.
