KATIE Price's ex-husband Kieran Hayler has got engaged to girlfriend Michelle Penticost after getting down on one knee in the Maldives.
The 32-year-old former stripper is said to have popped the question after over a year of dating during the romantic holiday.
Michelle announced the news on her Facebook page, sharing a selection of snaps from the proposal – including a close up of her stunning ring.
Other images showed the pair kissing on a deserted beach at sunset.
Michelle captioned the post: "So today at sunset I became a fiance" alongside ring, champagne, and diamond emojis.
Kieran has not mentioned the engagement on his own social media pages, but did share a snap of two glasses of champers on a table.
A source told The Sun Online: "Kieran has been planning this for a long time – he’s known he wanted to do this for ages, but wanted to wait for the perfect moment.
"He’s really keen to get the divorce finalised now because he can’t wait to marry Michelle.
"He loves his life with her and wants to make it official."
Kieran is technically still married to Katie, with their divorce set to be finalised any day now.
We have contacted Kieran's rep for comment.
The newly-engaged couple first went public with their romance in July 2018 after meeting at their children's school.
Michelle and her son from a previous relationship live with Kieran and the children he shares with Katie – six-year-old Jett, and five-year-old Bunny.
He married Katie in January 2013, becoming her third husband after Peter Andre and Alex Reid.
After a rocky relationship – which included Katie accusing Kieran of cheating with her best friend Jane Pountney – they split for good in May 2018.
Their divorce is yet to be finalised, but the mother-of-five recently revealed that this will happen imminently.
She praised Kieran in a social media post, writing: "Finally me and Kieran will be divorced in next few days and how amicable it has been and respect he is the first man not wanting anything from our divorce."
Katie added: "Wish him a happy future with Michelle and now I’m free and will never give up that happy fairytale ending of one day getting married and having my family unit I desire."
