But Adrian was a little in the dark – and only learnt about it when it was about to be publicised in print.

The actor’s daughter Madeleine said she had to hurriedly give her dad the good news because she had already told the newspaper and it was about to be published.

Actress and songwriter Miss Dunbar, 34, is to marry roofer Callum Lazenby-Todd, 32, after she proposed to him on London’s South Bank – and nearly got arrested.

Despite being beaten to the news by the Mail, Dunbar was delighted to learn that his daughter was getting married.

Miss Dunbar said: ‘He said, “Of course I’m delighted. My baby daughter’s getting married!”’ 

She added: ‘I was a little worried about the fact that I was the one who asked Callum to marry me, because Dad comes from a very traditional Irish background and I was concerned about what he would think.

‘But he had no issue with it. He knows me. He knows it’s the kind of thing I do!’

Miss Dunbar told how she was down on one knee on a jetty on the Thames outside London’s Oxo Tower – where the couple had their first kiss – in June when security guards called the police, saying they were trespassing as the jetty was closed.

Miss Dunbar, who yesterday released a single titled Manchild Apocalypse, said: ‘I was really nervous as I’d been waiting on this jetty for an hour. 

‘Callum sat down next to me and I got out an Irish Claddagh ring from a jewellery bag.

‘But I was down on my knee declaring my love for this man when I heard a security guard shouting at us, telling us we were not supposed to be there and that they were calling the cops.’

She added: ‘I just started bawling. I was crying and crying and crying, because the moment was spoiled. 

‘But Callum said, “Don’t worry. Yes, I will marry you”, and he let me put the ring on his finger.’

The couple, who met in June last year, are expecting their first child in December.

Miss Dunbar said her mother, Dutch-Australian actress Anna Nygh, 73, wondered at first why she didn’t wait for Callum to pop the question. 

But she said: ‘I think I preferred the special feeling of asking myself.’
