Myleene Klass engaged to Simon Motson after five years of dating


Myleene Klass has announced the happy news of her engagement to her partner Simon Motson. 

The couple have been together for five years and PR executive Simon popped the question on the anniversary of their first date. 

Sharing the happy news with Hello! Magazine, Myleene said: ‘We’re engaged! I was absolutely blown away. He even replicated the dinner we had – burger and fries, followed by cherry pie. 

‘When he got down on one knee and started fumbling around under the table, I thought he was joking. Then I thought: “Oh my God, he’s for real”.’ I was completely speechless.’

Of course, she mustered up enough words to say yes. 

Simon recalled of their happy moment: ‘It’s quite a blur but I think I said something along the lines of: “Myleene Angela Klass, will you marry me?”

‘ And I had to say it again… and I think I said it a third time. Finally she said yes and we were both in tears.’ 

The couple share son Apollo, one, and also have two children each from previous relationships.

Last year, Myleene was pretty candid in her description of her relationship with Simon.

She told Fabulous magazine: ‘He makes me laugh, he’s funny, he’s kind, he’s super-intelligent, he’s super-gorgeous. He’s my best friend with benefits.

‘We’re best friends who f**k! We have a very honest, very open, fun relationship. That’s all I’ve ever wanted, but I never knew it was possible. I never knew to wish for him. I said to him: “I just never knew men like you existed,” and he said he’d put that on a T-shirt.’

She added: ‘Even though we have lots of challenges thrown in our direction and we’ve got to navigate four different schools’ times and all the things that come with being a blended family, it just feels easy.’

Earlier this year, Myleene joked that she could get pregnant again this year when discussing lockdown, saying: ‘There’s either going to be a divorce boom or a baby boom — and I’ve got a good midwife and lawyers for either.’

It’ll be the second marriage for Myleene, who previously tied the knot with Graham Quinn in 2011 before divorcing in 2013. They share daughters Ava, 13, and Hero, nine.
