They’ve been enjoying a blissfully happy romance over the past six years.
And on Sunday Oliver Cheshire, 28, finally popped the question, proposing to his girlfriend Pixie Lott, 25, in the heart of London.
The male model and actress/singer both took to their Instagram accounts to share the happy news on Sunday evening after Oliver got down on bended knee in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral.
Pixie exclaimed it was the ‘biggest surprise ever’ as she showed off a dazzling diamond ring, adding simply in the photo’s caption: ‘so happy.’
The gorgeous blonde also shared a snap of the two kissing at Madison Restaurant & Bar in front of St Paul’s as the sun set, with glasses of bubbly in hand, alongside the caption ‘ahhhh’.
Oliver meanwhile joked that he’d been ‘caught in the act’ after a fan spotted the romantic moment, with Pixie seen wiping away tears of joy.
Reposting photos of the big moment, Oliver – who began dating Pixie in 2010 – told his fans: ‘Caught in the act. She only bloody said yes.’
He later added: ‘What a beautiful day and the most beautiful woman in the world said yes to me on it. Lucky man.’
A representative for Pixie told MailOnline on Sunday: ‘She’s so excited and celebrating with her family – and it was the most wonderful surprise at St Paul’s Cathedral this afternoon.’
The lovebirds’ engagement comes several months after Pixie complained that she regularly faced questions about when she and Oliver would take their romance to the next level.
Speaking to Notion magazine last year, she said: ‘Honestly, people are obsessed with it! I don’t know, I always get asked “when are you getting married?”
‘As soon as I started going out with Oliver I was asked it, and I still get asked in it every interview.
‘I don’t know why that is, maybe it’s just something that people want to hear about, I don’t know. I think male celebrities probably don’t get asked it as much.’
More recently, Pixie gushed about her relationship with handsome model Oliver as she revealed the elements that made their romance work.
‘I think every relationship is different and there are no real rules,’ she told The Sun in March of this year.
‘Some of my friends have dated loads of people and others are still with the first person they started going out with, a bit like me. If it feels right, you just go with it.’
And, despite their hectic schedules – which often see them working thousands of miles apart – the couple have learned the true value in trusting one another.
Pixie added: ‘Either I’m away or he’s away, and those times are hard. But we’re used to it because it’s been like that since the beginning.
‘We have complete trust, and I think if we didn’t have that, it would be much more difficult than it is. I’d like to think we were heading that way [towards marriage], definitely.’
Pixie recently reunited with her man after some time in Los Angeles, where she celebrated Halloween at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood last weekend and attending the BAFTA Britannia Awards.
Before jetting to America, the star enjoyed a well-earned holiday in Chania, Crete, with Oliver, after starring in the West End production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s.
Pixie appeared in the production as Holly Golightly at the Royal Haymarket Theatre from June to September, but the role has now been taken over by Georgia May Foote.
