Siva Kaneswaran Nareesha McCaffrey The Wanted

You know the saying that if you fail, then try again? Just ask The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran… it worked for him!

It has been revealed today that The Wanted hunk has FINALLY gotten engaged to his girlfriend of six years, Nareesha McCaffrey… after he was rejected at first! Awks!

The 24-year-old got down on one knee and popped the question to McCaffrey in front of a room full of people. But, it backfired at first when she literally rejected him. Apparently, she doesn’t like surprises. No kidding.

His girlfriend of six years planned a surprise birthday bash for the star, but he decided to add his own spin on things by turning his birthday party into an engagement party.

Siva has revealed that he couldn’t tell Max George, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker or Nathan Sykes in case they blabbed after a couple of beers.

He revealed: “It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn’t even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise”.

McCaffrey added that she is “still in shock” at the proposal. “I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can’t wait to start planning the wedding,” she told Hello! Magazine.

The bespoke three-caret diamond solitaire ring may have been up on eBay this morning if the shoe designer hadn’t quickly changed her mind about it all.

Siva added: “I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by – for you to be my wife. I’d bought the ring months before. I’d been trying to figure out the right time. I love her, I love every bit of her”.

Oh pass us the tissues… there’s nothing like an old romantic. Just a quick tip Nareesha, the words you say on the day go something like “I DO”… don’t make the poor bloke sweat again.
