Kym Marsh "can't wait" to marry Dan Hooper, who proposed to her on Friday (07.12.14), according to a friend.
Kym Marsh "can't wait" to marry Dan Hooper.
The 38-year-old actress - who plays Michelle Connor in 'Coronation Street' - reportedly said 'yes' straight away when her personal trainer boyfriend popped the question on Friday (05.12.14) before he whisked her away for a romantic weekend in Europe.
A friend shared: "Kym is the happiest and healthiest I've ever seen her and it's purely down to Dan. She can't wait to become his wife.
Dan is believed to have been "nervous" before asking his now-fiancee because he wanted everything to be "perfect".
Speaking about the proposal, the friend added: "He knew it had to be perfect for Kym. He was pretty sure she'd say 'yes' but he was still nervous.
"Dan hadn't told Kym what was going to happen but they both dressed up for a big night out."
The couple have yet to confirm their happy news publicly, but Kym's excited tweet on Saturday (06.12.14) morning seemed to hint at good news.
She wrote: "Has the most amazing night last night with @Dan_hoops #luckygirl
"Can't believe I'm out and about at this time!!!! Surely I should be in bed!!!! Ah well worth it! I'm being whisked away by my boy! #excited (sic)".
However, the friend has revealed that the pair - who both have children from their previous relationships - have shared the news with their close family.
The friend continued: "They've told their children and immediate family members who have all given them their blessing."
Kym's friends - who have seen her last two marriages to Jack Ryder and Jamie Lomas end in divorce - are excited for the couple too.
The friend explained to The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Even though they haven't been together for long, they both know it's completely right.
"A lot of Kym's friends were worried to begin with that she was rushing into something with Dan. But now they've got to know him they're convinced he's a nice guy with only good intentions."
