The 44-year-old Pussycat Dolls singer and the rugby ace, 38, are set to become husband and wife after he proposed during a romantic getaway.

Sharing snaps from their special moment, Nicole penned: "I said yes" alongside a ring emoji.
The stunning pictures showed the moment Thom got down on one knee with the ring, and the moment they embraced after she said yes.
The pair first became properly acquainted when his group Tristar knocked on Nicole's dressing room door and thanked her for not sending them home amid their stint on X Factor: Celebrity.
Thom later revealed that flirting with the Don't Cha hitmaker wasn't even on his mind when they entered her room.
He admitted that he didn't think he stood a chance, but said there simply was an 'instant attraction' between them.
He explained: 'It wasn’t even in my thought process to try it on with Nicole because it would have been unprofessional and she’s so lovely and stunning in every possible way. I was just like, "She’s out of my league".
"Within the first couple of days with Nicole it was just awesome, and it has been awesome ever since."
His list of former girlfriends includes model Kelly Brook while Nicole previously enjoyed an on-off relationship with Lewis Hamilton for eight years.
Ex-Scottish international rugby union player Tom previously revealed that it was his grandmother who inspired him to "pluck up the courage" and talk to Nicole.
He recalled her motto: "If you don’t ask, you don’t get".
It has been previously reported that the couple are open to starting a family together in the near future.
A friend told The Sun: "Thom told pals he's been taking supplements to boost fertility.
"Nicole and Thom are ridiculously loved-up, and have had serious conversations about everything from marriage to babies."
In 2020, Don't Hold Your Breath singer Nicole confirmed their baby plans saying she was "for sure" thinking about the future and "definitely wants kids".
She told The Mirror at the time: "He's my man… the man of my dreams. I definitely want kids, at the right time. It is all about timing."
