There’s great news for fans of Cheryl Cole today as it’s been revealed that her boyfriend Tre Holloway has asked Cheryl’s dad Garry for his daughter’s hand in marriage, and was told ‘Yes!’
Tre evidently decided to ask Garry after Cheryl’s mum Joan reportedly said ‘No’ when he asked her for her blessing to propose to Cheryl on Christmas Day.
So it’s now all systems go for a lavish wedding, but first, Tre is reportedly “busy creating the perfect engagement ring” which he’ll present to former X Factor judge Cheryl very soon…
A friend of Cheryl’s told the Mirror, “She’s always said that although Ashley’s £100,000 ring was the most expensive jewellery she’d ever owned, she’d rather have had a £100 one and a happy marriage.
“Tre and her have been discussing marriage for the past couple of months now.
“They know they want to be together and she’s desperate to start a family – especially as she turns 30 this year.
“Cheryl told Tre over Christmas that she was starting to think about marrying again, something she never thought she’d contemplate after her divorce from Ashley.
“She made it clear she doesn’t want to rush into anything but she needed to know they both want the same things.”
And of Tre approaching Garry to ask for his blessing, the insider said, “After plucking up courage, Tre phoned Garry last week.
“He was very surprised by Tre’s call and told family friends how he almost said no.
“He didn’t know if Cheryl was ready and wanted to protect her from getting hurt again.
“But he decided to give Tre his permission and asked to just make sure he was 100 per cent sure when he proposed.
“He warned Tre that Cheryl couldn’t take another heartbreak and said there was nothing wrong with waiting a bit longer.
“Tre admitted he hadn’t bought a ring yet but wanted his blessing for when the time feels right.
“Tre’s so excited. He still doesn’t know when he’s going to pop the question, but he’s looking at ring designs…
“Although Cheryl loves diamonds she doesn’t expect some expensive rock.
“Tre has an idea of what he’s going to get and wants to have the ring specially ¬designed as he wants it to be a one-off.
“He wants to include pearls on the ring somewhere as they are Cheryl’s birthstone.”
However, the paper adds, “A spokesman for Cheryl last night refused to comment on Tre’s decision to ask her dad for permission to marry her.”
Aww well I hope it is true and that there’s a big wedding soon! Do you like Cheryl and Tre as a couple?
Here’s a look at them together on-stage, because Tre is of course one of Cheryl’s backing dancers…
