We’ve seen Declan Donnelly look like a smitten kitten next to girlfriend Ali Astall for the past year and a half.
And now we’re sending them both massive CONGRATULATIONS as Dec has popped the question and the two are ENGAGED!!
Must be something in the water in celebsville.
We’re literally so happy we could cry and we’re not even the ones getting married.
Dec, 39, reportedly popped the question to his TV manager girlfriend (or should we say FIANCÉE) down under last weekend, as she joined him for this year’s I’m A Celebrity.
SO CUTE. This is an excuse to drink champagne for breakfast right?
The two have known each other for more years than we can count on our fingers, but only started dating a year and a half ago.
Since then, things seem to have gone from strength to strength, with Ali, 35, moving into Dec’s house at the beginning of the year.
Plus they already have a dog together called Rocky so it must be love (love, love), obvs.
Friends are now saying the Wedding will be sometime next year, before the two concentrate on making mini-them.
A source told the Mirror: “Dec and Ali are completely besotted with each other. They have been best friends for a long time.
“Dec soon realised that the he’d met the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with and felt ready to settle down.
“They’re keen to start a family and want to get hitched next year.
“Friends and family are delighted and see that they’re taking the next step as they’re perfect for each other.”
We’re properly delighted too. There’s just something about a celebrity wedding that makes us want to cry with joy. Not sure why really but HEY.
Dec’s announcement comes after Benedict Cumberbatch and Geri Halliwell also announced their wedding plans, although Dec decided to ditch the newspaper advert for, erm, well we don’t really know what.
Ring brought in by a snake maybe? Plonked in the middle of a witchety grub?
Anyway, MASSIVE CONGRATS TO DEC AND ALI, and can we have an invite please?
