Natalie Cassidy is engaged
Natalie Cassidy has got engaged.
The 'EastEnders' star is set to tie the knot with cameraman Marc Humphreys after he got down on one knee over the weekend to celebrate their first anniversary of dating.
A source said: "Family and friends are thrilled for Natalie and have been buying gifts for them to celebrate."
Whilst a spokeswoman for the BBC One show added to The Sun newspaper: "She is really happy."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old actress - who plays Sonia Fowler on the BBC soap - previously opened up about her split from her abusive ex-boyfriend Adam Cottrell, admitting she tried to make it work for the sake of their five-year-old daughter Eliza.
She shared at the time: "It was my decision. I'm really glad I gave it another chance.
"When kids are involved you almost have to. I can always say to Eliza, 'Mummy tried, but it didn't work out.'"
The pair had an on and off relationship from 2010 onwards and got engaged soon after they started dating.
He was then charged with assaulting her, and after admitting his error, he received 120 hours of community service.
In one attack, he hit her with a slipper and smeared mascara over her and in the other attack, he ripped her clothes when he grabbed her.
