Chloe Madeley and James Haskell are engaged following romantic proposal in Paris

Chloe Madeley and James Haskell have announced that they are engaged to be married.

The 30-year-old personal trainer revealed that her England rugby star partner popped the question during a romantic stroll in Paris.

‘He kissed me on the forehead and said, “You do know how much I love you, don’t you? The last three and a half years have been the best years of my life”,’ she told Hello! magazine.

‘I just thought he was being romantic because we were in Paris, so I replied, “Oh babe, that’s so sweet”.’

Chloe went on to tell the publication that she left speechless when the 33-year-old made his intentions clear.

‘But then he added, “And you do know I want to marry you,” and started to get down on one knee,’ she gushed.

‘At first I thought he was joking. I was speechless and stared at him in disbelief. My first thought was, “Oh my God, he has a ring!”.’

James revealed that he designed the sparkler himself because he ‘wanted it to be perfect for her’ and described the rock as ‘a labour of love’.

According to the loved-up duo, Chloe’s famous mum and dad – TV presenting duo Judy Finnigan and Richard Madeley – and James’ parents were equally bowled over by the pair’s news.

“They were ecstatic,’ quipped Chloe.

James added: ‘Planning the rest of my life with Chloe is exciting and I couldn’t be happier.’
