Tina O'Brien has got engaged.
The 'Coronation Street' actress feels like the "luckiest woman on the planet" after Adam Crofts - the father of her 18-month-old son Beau - popped the question on April 22 after five years together.
She told OK! magazine: "We couldn't be any happier. I feel like the luckiest woman on the planet, I really do. Adam is my best friend."
Tina also has seven-year-old Scarlett with ex-boyfriend Ryan Thomas and the youngster now wants to plan the couple's wedding.
The actress said: "Scarlett did her own little thing for us. I called her immediately to say Adam had proposed and she screamed with delight. She understands what it means.
"The next day we came home and her and Beau - with [their nanny] Sarah's help - had made heart-shaped chocolates and coloured them pink.
"They put them on the pillows on our bed like a hotel. She'd made a card for us too.
"She said to me, 'Mummy, can I plan your wedding?' Apparently there's a programme on CBBC where the kids plan their parents' wedding. But can you imagine what we'd end up with? Little Mix would be performing and I'd be in a purple sparkly dress!"
Both Tina and Adam get on well with Ryan and he was delighted with their news.
Tina said: "He knows and he's very happy for us both. Adam told him and he said congratulations."
Adam added: "Ryan trains where I work so I see him a lot. We get on well, we always have done."
The 32-year-old actress loves her diamond engagement ring, and admits it was hard for Adam to find something to suit her tastes.
She said: "I wasn't very helpful. I wanted something old but new, dainty but not, gold but silver. But it's beautiful. He chose really well.
"It's a circle ring with a diamond halo setting in white gold. It feels lovely wearing it."
