Kate Hudson engaged to Matt Bellamy

Kate Hudson has announced that she is engaged to rocker boyfriend Matt Bellamy.

The pregnant actress had been wearing an engagement ring for around a week but only officially announced the big news yesterday on American breakfast programme, The Today Show.

According to handbag.com,  The announcement only came after host Matt Lauer began questioning Hudson about the enormous ring on her hand.

The Something Borrowed actress revealed: “This is new, I’m engaged, it just happened a week ago. I haven’t really announced it, I was waiting for someone to notice.

“He’s a beautiful man and I’m very excited…[The proposal was] very sweet and very romantic.”

Hudson remained otherwise very tight-lipped, leaving the media to speculate about details such as the date, the guests and the choice of wedding reception.

The couple have been together for around twelve months after Hudson met the Muse frontman at a music festival in California last year.

The proposal may have come as somewhat of a shock considering in Hudson had recently told The Daily Mail that marriage was not a necessity for couples in a loving relationship.

“My parents aren’t married and they’ve done just fine. I don’t see it as something I need to do,” she told the newspaper last week.
