Katie Price, 42, ‘gets ENGAGED for the EIGHTH time after boyfriend Carl Woods, 32, proposes following whirlwind 10 month relationship’
Katie Price is reportedly engaged for the eighth time after her boyfriend Carl Woods popped the question.
The television personality, 42, and Carl, 32, are said to have accepted a five-figure magazine deal to reveal their happy news.
It comes six weeks after Katie’s divorce from her third husband Kieran Hayler was finalised, three years after their split.
Proposal: Katie Price is reportedly engaged for the eighth time after her boyfriend Carl Woods popped the question
A source told The Sun: ‘Katie is madly in love with Carl and excited to take the next step in their relationship.
‘But – ever the businesswoman —-she knows this is also an opportunity to pick up an easy pay cheque. Katie won’t confirm the news until the cash is in the bank.
‘Katie has been down this road many times before but she has no reservations about taking the plunge with Carl. She’s a true romantic and, in him, she thinks she’s finally found the one.’
MailOnline has contacted Katie’s representatives for comment.
Katie has made no secret of her desire to marry Carl.
It was reported last year that Carl spent £10,000 on an engagement ring for Katie in October and asked her eldest son Junior for his permission to marry her.
Over the Christmas holiday, Katie revealed that she hoped to enter the New Year ‘with a baby on the way and a ring on my finger’ as she is not getting ‘any younger’.
The former Loose Women star admitted that she knows Carl is ‘the one’ and cannot wait for him to pop the big question.
Katie has been utterly inseparable from her new beau Carl Woods since they went public with their romance in July.
At the time, she told The Sun that Carl did not propose at Christmas as it is ‘too cliché’ but that her boyfriend does have big plans to propose in 2021.
Carl also bragged that when they finally do marry it will be like ‘nothing ever done before’ and plans to send her into floods of tears with his proposal.
