Singer Amy Winehouse is engaged to boyfriend Blake Fielder-Civil, a source close to the singer has confirmed.
Fielder-Civil – a 23-year old gofer for music videos that may now need to compete with François-Henri Pinault for most famous, hyphenated fiance – proposed earlier this week with a diamond ring from Tiffany.
“I’m a very lucky girl to have found someone I love so much,” Winehouse, 23, told the U.K.’s The Sun newspaper, flashing her ring.
“I hope to be with him for the rest of my life. We haven’t set a date yet or anything like that.”
That’s ok. They can’t expect to be as far along as Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, the lovely couple that’s set to marry on July 7.
Wines and Fielder-Civil first started dating two and a half years ago, and Winehouse — who told People magazine in March that she has “12 or 13 tattoos … I haven’t counted” — promptly tattooed his name above one of her boobs.
The pair later split because Fielder-Civil was also in another relationship — an experience that inspired Winehouse to write the track “Tears Dry On Their Own” on her album Back to Black.
Earlier this year, Winehouse split with her boyfriend of nearly a year, chef Alex Claire. A month ago, she and Fielder-Civil got back together. It all sounds almost as healthy as the relationship between Alec Baldwin and his daughter, Ireland.
Winehouse told The Sun: “He proposed at home a few days ago and I took a day to finally agree. Obviously we are both young and it is frightening. But it is the right thing to do. That is why I agreed.”
Such passionate, loving words. The father of Britney Spears speaks nicer about his daughter than Amy seems to about her fiance here. These kids should have a great life together.
