Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard are engaged. It was confirmed by Lampard's agent today that the Daybreak presenter has accepted her footballer beau's surprise proposal during the couple's break to sunny LA.
Steve Kutner said: "I am pleased to say that Christine Bleakley has accepted Frank Lampard's surprise engagement proposal here in LA." He then added: "They are obviously both delighted but there are no immediate wedding plans and the couple will not be making any further comment on this happy & private occasion." News of their engagement comes after widespread media speculation that the couple were on the verge of getting engaged, after pictures of the two being affectionate on holiday in California emerged. The pair, who have been dating for a year and half, met at the Pride of Britain Awards in 2009 after being introduced by Piers Morgan and England cricketer Kevin Pietersen.
