UPDATE: Fearne Cotton engaged

Over the weekend, British music TV/radio host Fearne Cotton, 29, got engaged to her skater boyfriend of the past two years, Jesse Jenkins, Friday night - her 29th birthday. Cotton stepped out of the BBC Radio 1 studios on Monday with a diamond ring (among others) on her left hand.

Sources claim that Jenkins, 24, led Cotton, blindfolded, to London's Richmond Park, where he reportedly got down on one knee and proposed.

"Fearne was so touched at how Jesse did it - it was really romantic. It was a big shock for everyone but Fearne is ecstatic. It was the last thing that she was expecting but she didn't hesitate to say yes. She is so excited about being engaged that she hasn't even thought about the wedding - that will be something she thinks about later," says the source.

Cotton's rep confirmed the rumours late yesterday. It will be the first marriage for both.

The presenter has always spoken of her desire for marriage and family. "I've always been broody. Having a family of my own is really important, more than anything. I think that's what it's all about, isn't it? It's about finding a life partner who's your best friend. What's the point of doing great things at work if you don't have someone to share it with?"
