Pop star Tom Parker engaged
Former The Wanted star Tom Parker is off the market.
The singer has proposed to actress Kelsey Hardwick after dating since 2009.
"I feel like the happiest man in the world," the 27-year-old pop star told Hello! as he announced the engagement, explaining it took him months to plan the magical moment.
"There was a trail of rose petals leading to the TV where I'd set up a montage of all our pictures from the day we met until now," he said. "I was crying my eyes out at this point. Then at the end it said, 'Here's to the next chapter, turn around', and when she turned around I was down on one knee. I literally could not get my words out, I was so overcome with emotion."
There's no date set, but Tom and Kelsey have a few celebrity guests planned - he hopes to invite pals David and Victoria Beckham and Justin Bieber, his one-time label mate.
His links to the Beckhams isn't random - Parker and his The Wanted bandmates performed at Romeo Beckham's 10th birthday party in Los Angeles in 2012.
And Kelsey is hoping close pal Pixie Lott will be a big part of the wedding as she was with the actress on the night she met her future husband.
But first, Kelsey, who appeared in Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, has to track Pixie down - and tell her she's engaged.
"I'm dying to tell her...," she says. "She'll be so happy!"
And Tom is hoping his former bandmates will be a part of the wedding, adding, "I'd love the boys to be ushers."
The Wanted went on an indefinite hiatus in 2014 after originally forming in 2009.
