Heidi Range has revealed she is engaged to her boyfriend Alex Partakis after a year-and-a-half of dating.
The 31-year-old former Sugababes singer shared the exciting news on Twitter after the property developer popped the question on Thursday evening.
Heidi tweeted, “Delighted to share the news that my gorgeous @alexpartakis proposed last night! Am the happiest girl alive and can’t wait to be Mrs HP x”.
Alex also took to the social network site, writing, “Am the happiest man in the World today. @Heidi_range said yes! Can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together xxx”.
Heidi and Alex were set up by her personal trainer in early 2014 and both felt an instant connection.
Their first date was a restaurant in London’s Notting Hill and they have been inseparable ever since.
The Push the Button singer revealed in an interview earlier this week that she was hoping for a proposal, but didn’t want to jinx things.
She admitted, “I try not to think about it – I could be waiting a long time”.
She recently joked that her pet pug was as crazy for Alex as she is, telling Now magazine, “Bettie’s obsessed with him. She follows him into the shower – he can’t escape. And when he’s watching TV she sits on his head.”
Heidi was previously engaged to presenter Dave Berry, who she dated for eight years, but they called it quits in December 2011.
The star has turned her back on music since chart-topping girl band the Sugababes went their separate ways, confirming the news in the autumn of 2013 after a long hiatus.
