Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has announced she is engaged to partner Scott Ratcliff.
The Army man, 33, popped the question to Kym, 45, on her birthday.
And she told OK! magazine how happy it has made her.
“I’m absolutely over the moon – I can’t believe it,” she told the publication. “It’s been the best birthday surprise ever. I can’t stop smiling!”
Kym met Scott in 2018 through former co-star Antony Cotton and has previously told how she feels they were meant to be together.
“I really believe that we’re made for each other,” she told OK last year.
“We don’t argue, we’re similar, we laugh at the same things. We’re used to time apart but despite that we’re as close as we are.”
However, the pair managed to spend lockdown together despite Scott usually being on tour with the army.
Kym told The Sun it had brought them closer together.
She said: “He was due to go to staff college in September but we’ve ended up spending most of the past year together.
“I feel so lucky to be in this situation. It has given me the opportunity to have more time with Scott, my son David, my daughters Emilie and Polly and the rest of my family. I’m not taking those things for granted.”
This isn’t the first time Kym has been engaged or married.
