Radio 1 presenter is engaged after her skater boyfriend proposed on her 29th birthday
Fearne Cotton is set to walk down the aisle with her skater boyfriend after he proposed on her birthday.
Jesse Jenkins, 24, surprised the Radio 1 presenter with a trip to Richmond Park in London, where he went down on bended knee.
The pro-skater blindfolded his girlfriend before taking her to the park on Friday and asking to marry her.
Cotton is now sporting a sparkly diamond ring on her engagement finger.
‘It was a big shock for everyone but Fearne is ecstatic. It was the last thing that she was expecting but she didn’t hesitate to say yes,’ a friend of the couple told the Sunday People.
The loved-up duo have not yet set a date for the wedding, but Cotton has often talked about wanting to get married and have a family.
‘She is so excited about being engaged that she hasn’t even thought about the wedding – that will be something she thinks about later,’ adds the source.
Cotton has been dating Jenkins since 2008, but their relationship become serious about six months ago. Her spokesperson confirmed the radio presenter is engaged to Jenkins.
