Natasha, meanwhile, gushed about their engagement on her own Twitter feed, telling fans: "So.....our news is now out! @RitchieNeville asked me to Marry Him."

Ah, congrats!

The couple's exciting news comes after they have been dating for the last two years. Natasha and Ritchie struck up a romance, after being reunited on The Big Reunion back in 2013. The pair had known each other from the music circuit back in the day, after both being in bands at the same time.

Since getting together, Natasha and Ritchie have seemed pretty smitten and even went on to have a baby together, their daughter Ella Rose, last September. While she is Ritchie's first child, Ella is Natasha's fourth. She is already mum to sons Josh, Harry and Alfie from previous relationships.

Ahead of Ritchie getting down on one knee, Natasha had gushed she had finally found her "happy ever after".

She, Ritchie and the children had just moved into a new home together and content with family life, the singer gushed: " hope with all my heart this time it's forever and the happy-ever-after ending I've always wanted."

"I don't think I've ever been as happy and secure," she added.

Back in February, Natasha had teased we could be waiting for some time for an engagement, exclusively telling Reveal she and Ritchie were focusing on the children instead of a wedding.

When we asked if marriage could be on the cards, Natasha coyly replied: "Erm, not this year! I think we've got enough on our hands, busy household! We just want to give the kids our undivided attention for now. It would be quite stressful trying to plan a wedding with four kids."

Seems like Ritchie had other plans! We couldn't be happier for them both.
