Gemma Collins has confirmed her engagement after accepting a second marriage proposal from long-term boyfriend Rami Hawash. 

The TV personality, 40, reunited with former fiancé Hawash during lockdown, seven years after breaking off their original engagement. 

But she admits they are now looking ahead to their wedding after he proposed for the second time, but is reluctant to make definite marriage plans with the businessman until his divorce from his first wife is finalised.

Confirming her engagement to The Times, she said: ‘Yeah, but we can’t really come out and say anything yet because Ram was married before and his paperwork has not come through, so until that’s officially signed, we’ve not said anything.

‘They’ve not been together for two years. I know her, she’s got a partner, she’s as good as gold. There’s a child involved, he’s only three, obviously I love him to death.   

‘But until that paperwork’s signed I can’t come out.’

She explained: ‘I was with Amy Childs at the weekend and we had a friend’s wedding and she’s like a guru at how to get pregnant.

‘She was telling me that there’s certain days in the month that you’ve got to do this. So I basically appointed her to be the head of my pregnancy.

The TV personality has previously suffered three miscarriages, with the third coming in July 2020 after she fell pregnant ex-boyfriend James Argent’s baby.

She revealed the loss shortly after Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle announced she had lost what would been her second child with Prince Harry.

Gemma told The Sun: I’ve not talked about this before, but it was my third, each one a devastating loss on my longed-for journey to motherhood.

‘I’ve been trying to have a baby for nearly a decade now, only to have my hopes dashed time and again by first one miscarriage, then another.’
