Huge news for John Newman: he's engaged!
The Love Me Again singer has proposed to girlfriend Nana, just a year after revealing his brain tumour has returned for a second time.
Speaking to The Sun about the engagement, a friend of John's said: "John and Nana are completely in love and it felt completely right to get engaged. He proposed and she has been showing off her engagement ring. They have spoken about getting married later this year, although their plans are still up in the air at the moment".
The source continued: "Recently she has joined him at his festival appearances across Europe. She gets on really well with his family too. Nana loves John for who he is and not because he’s a celebrity. She certainly has no interest in being famous and just wants to carry on working as normal".
John previously spoke about his relationship with Nana, explaining: "I'm dating somebody who is really supportive of me and really lovely. She’s not in the industry. She’s an air hostess and — it sounds really, really bad — we met on a plane.She was working, it wasn’t like any weird flight thing, we started talking and she was amazing. I honestly couldn’t give a f*** about fame or celebrity. She’s just brilliant and I really enjoy spending time with her".
Aw - congratulations on the happy news, guys!
