Is Florence Welch really getting married to photographer boyfriend Jesse Jenkins? The singer, aged 28, has been spotted alongside Jenkins on several occasions recently. The couple has even admitted to dating each other. But the question remaining is, are they planning to get married?
If the rumors are to be believed, the answer is yes!! Welch and Jenkins, who have been spotted together a lot recently, are apparently very serious about their relationship and want to take it to the next level. They were sighted for the first time publicly enjoying a low key coffee outing. Since then, they have been seen together quite a few times.
Now, that she is dating Jenkins, despite a hectic schedule, she carves out time for her new beau Jesse.
“They are not seen out together that often as they prefer to stay in and chill out,” a source told UK newspaper The Sun.
Now that things seem to be getting serious between them, Florence is said to be on cloud nine. She is incredibly happy with how things are developing between her and Jesse. It’s believed the relationship is boosting her mood in major ways. “Florence is happier than she’s been in a long time,” the insider said.
Before dating Jenkins, Welch had dated event planner James Nesbitt. They started going out in 2012 and split in 2014 after dating for over two years. Before that, she had dated Editor Stuart Hammond in October 2011. The thing that helped her through these break ups was her music.
“I’ve just gone through a dramatic breakup. It’s sad, I get so lonely. I really did feel like I was breaking down several times. This job is not making me sad; the situation I’m in is making me sad. Singing is the only time I feel truly happy,” she told Q magazine.
Singing sensation Florence and her band ‘Florence and the Machine’ started their music career around 6 years back. They released their debut album Lungs, in the United Kingdom on 6 July 2009 and it peaked at number one in the UK and number two in Ireland. As of 6 August 2009, the album had sold over 100,000 copies in the UK and by 10 August it had been at number two for five consecutive weeks.
The band's second album, Ceremonials was released on 2011. It debuted at number one on the UK Album chart and number six on the US Billboard. On 12 January 2012, Florence and the Machine were nominated for two Brit Awards, with the award ceremony at 02 Arena, London.
Welch is always seen with her hair in red curls and a style that has been described as daring but casual. As a teenager she used to read fashion magazines more often than music magazines. Early in her music career she dressed like a tomboy, but her style has changed since then.
Welch has named Fleetwood Mac pop/rock singer Stevie Nicks as a musical, fashion, and general influence. In an interview she asserted, "I'm pretty obsessed with Stevie Nicks from her style to her voice. I like watching her on You Tube and her old performances, the way she moves and everything".
Welch is a hot, sexy singer who is surprisingly obsessed with being inked. She has got two tattoos. She has a height of 5’9” and an enviable figure. She has truly worked hard to maintain her shape. She stays connected to her fans thorough Twitter and Facebook and Instagram.
