OMG, One of Your Favorite Boy Band Members Actually Got Engaged!

By  | 

Looks like wedding bells are in the air for this boy band member! It’s been over two years since British band The Wanted split up (or took a hiatus, as the lads prefer to put it), but it looks like the guys have been doing just fine these days. Last year, Jay McGuiness was crowned the winner of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, Nathan Sykes has a debut solo album expected to be released this fall, Max George appeared on Glee, Siva Kaneswaran is working on music of his own, and Tom Parker also released music. However, that’s not the only thing Tom has been up to lately. Over the weekend, Tom and his long-time girlfriend, Kelsey Hardwick, got engaged!

The 27-year-old posted this picture on Instagram after the news:

The couple has been together for nearly seven years, so many are saying it’s about time that Tom put a ring on it. In a recent interview and photo shoot with a British mag, Tom explained how the whole proposal went down. Based on what Tom said, he’s a total marshmallow who will probably be a sobbing mess when Kelsey walks down the aisle. “There was a trail of rose petals leading to the TV, where I’d set up a montage of all our pictures from the day we met until now, with a song playing in the background that our friend wrote especially for us. I was crying my eyes out at this point.” Umm, is Tom BF goals or what?

Once Kelsey walked to the end of the trail, she turned around, and there was Tom, down on one knee with an engagement ring. “I literally could not get my words out, I was so overcome with emotion,” Tom said. He also took to Twitter to share the good news:

So does this mean that the other guys of The Wanted will make an appearance at the wedding? We sure hope so. LBH, a reunion photo is long overdue.
