Stacey Solomon to say "I do"

Former X Factor star and fan favourite Stacey Solomon has become engaged to long-term beau Aaron Barnham, the Mail Online reports.

The 22-year-old was spotted boasting a diamond engagement ring as her and the new fiancée arrived in Heathrow Airport yesterday. The pair had been taking a mini-break in New York when Aaron reportedly popped the question on board of a horse driven carriage in Central Park.

Stacey immediately leapt to her Twitter page to gush: “I can’t believe he’s finally asked me.”

As if that left any doubt in her followers minds’, Miss Solomon’s publicist later confirmed the news that the couple were indeed engaged.

The hunt will no doubt now be on for a wedding venue. London will of course appeal to the mother-of-one as she increasingly spends her time in the media spotlight fronting campaigns for brands like Iceland.

However, it is not yet clear just when the wedding will take place. As well as trying to make a mark in the music industry with her version of ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ this year, the ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ 2010 winner is four-months pregnant with 24-year-old Aaron’s child; the couple’s first together.

Despite this, Stacey appears determined that Aaron is the one for her. Speaking to The Sun recently she said: “We are really excited. And I’m really looking forward to everything, knowing I am sharing it with the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.”

Her spokesman Max Clifford today added: “Stacey and Aaron are engaged and we’re all absolutely thrilled for them. They’re a lovely genuine couple who get on so well. It’s a wonderful finale to what has been a tremendous year for her.”
