Sorry ladies! It looks like another boy bander is ready to say “I do.” Months after One Direction singer Zayn Malik popped the question to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran has confirmed his engagement to his longtime girlfriend, Nareesha McCaffrey.
The singer opened up about the engagement to Hello! magazine in the U.K.
During the interview, he revealed that he asked his shoe designer girlfriend to marry him at a surprise birthday party she had planned for him.
“I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by… for you to be my wife,” he said. “It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn’t even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise.”
The singer asked McCaffrey to marry him with a 3-carat solitaire-cut diamond ring, which he had bought months prior to the proposal. “I love her, I love every bit of her,” he added about his future bride who tells the magazine that she’s in “shock” over the engagement.
She added, “I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can’t wait to start planning the wedding.”
While it’s unclear when the actual engagement took place or when the couple plans to marry, the happy couple is getting love from one of Siva’s pals in the band, Tom Parker. “Just got to say I’m totally over the moon for @SivaTheWanted and @Nare_esha. I’m expecting a position as brides made ;) x,” he tweeted Monday morning.
