Sugababes star Heidi Range has announced that she is engaged to partner Alex Partakis. The singer couldn't hide her excitement as she took to Twitter to confirm the big news. Heidi wrote:
"Delighted to share the news that my gorgeous @alexpartakis proposed last night!" She continued: "Am the happiest girl alive and can't wait to be Mrs. HP," alongside emoji’s of a heart and a ring.
The two had been dating for around 18 months when Alex finally popped the question. Well, while she’s happy with her love life, Dave Berry must definitely have been shocked.
Heidi was previously engaged to presenter Dave Berry before they split after eight years of dating. The two were considered to be one of the strongest couples in the industry and were always surrounded by rumors of possible marriage. Back then, the two seemed lovely together in various parties, public events and regular outings. Many people were shocked when the TV presenter announced that he was splitting from his girlfriend. The two had even been engaged with each other.
Talking exclusively to OK! Magazine back in 2010, Heidi Range spoke of how she was wearing pyjamas and slippers when ex-fiancé Dave Berry popped the question on New Year's Eve. The pop star, who shot fame with her band Sugababes, had taken to her Twitter page to break the news: 'Very sadly, after eight years together, myself and Dave decided to separate a few months ago.
Fast forward some years and she is now with property developer Alex. Apparently, the two met through a mutual friend and Range says that her dog is a big fan of her fiance. Just for trivia, Alex is a huge fan of books. Nonetheless, he also gushed about the engagement, competing with Heidi over who was the happier of the two.
Alex wrote: "Am the happiest man in the world today. @Heidi Range said yes! Can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together xxx."
The Prop group, the Sugababes, split around two years ago and Heidi recently said they had no plans to reform "at the moment".
She said: "I feel lucky to have been in the band for 11 years, but I was definitely ready for a break."
Heidi, who competed on Dancing on Ice back in 2012, says she is now busy working on her new house with Alex.
She said: "The main thing is my new house. I have bought an old warehouse in London with Alex and we’re in the middle of doing it up."
Now that she is engaged (again), she may be planning to start a family now. She definitely seems happy with her new boyfriend. With posts of her and Alex all over her Instagram account, we hope her engagement turns into a successful marriage this time around.
