Pregnant singer Una Healy is set to marry her boyfriend, rugby star Ben Foden. The Irish pop star – who is expecting her first child with Ben – announced the exciting news on the first night of her tour with The Saturdays in London on Friday (December 16).
Later she thanked her fans via Twitter for their support. “Thank you so much for all the lovely for messages for Ben_Foden and I on the announcement of our engagement. Big love to you all. Xxx,” she wrote.
Ben recently revealed his plans to propose to Una – who is expecting a baby girl – and his hopes for a big family in the future. “I am planning to go down on one knee during the next few weeks,” he said. “It won’t come as a total surprise because we’ve been discussing marriage for some time.
“It will happen and I want lots of children. I plan to do it right with a simple, classic item from Cartier so she won’t refuse me.”
Last month Una said she was waiting patiently for the proposal. “At the end of the day, it’s up to the guys. There’s no way I’d consider proposing,” she said. “I’d get no satisfaction from asking him.”
