Danniella Westbrook engaged?! Yup, according to Danniella’s recently updated Twitter bio the 43 year old actress is set to tie-the-knot with her ‘toyboy beau’ 34-year-old Alan Thompson. The age gap clearly doesn’t bother the loved-up pair, who have been inseparable over the last few weeks.
The shock announcement comes after the former Eastenders star took to Twitter earlier this week to share the news with her fans that she was finally in a good place after a tumultuous year so far.
“I’m in the best place of my life and so happy I can’t stop smiling” she gushed.
“Sorry for my absence from social media but love does that to a girl but I’m back and happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
The news of the engagement will come as a surprise to many, as Danniella and Alan have only been dating for a matter of weeks. The mother-of-two is currently on holiday with her partner, and the pair were spotted frolicking in the ocean together.
Changing her status on twitter, the star subtly announced her engagement instead of sharing a photo of her sparkler:
‘Momma, actress, presenter, writer, fiancée to Alan Thomason, loyal friend and West Ham supporter. Lover of twirls and Louis Vuitton #familyfirst.’
Daniella’s loyal fans, who have stood by her over the last few years as the star has tackled surgery nightmares, homelessness and health issues, were quick to congratulate the actress on the happy news.
“So pleased for you hunnie….you go girl” said one fan. Another added, “Good on ya!! So happy for you, you deserve happiness this one is a keeper.”
No official details of the engagement have been announced yet. But hopefully Danniella will join the Loose Women panel soon to share all of the gossip!
