Leona Lewis has announced she’s engaged to long-term partner Dennis Jauch after eight years together.
The X Factor winner revealed the news in a sweet Instagram post that showed her enormous pear-shaped diamond engagement ring.
She captioned the black and white snap of them both: "My heart is singing the happiest song it’s ever sung!
"I’m bursting with joy and overcome with emotion that I get to embark on this new adventure with my best friend, my partner in crime, my ride or die! @dennisjauch."
She went on: "I can’t wait to be your wife – eeeek wife! What?! Argh! Hahahahaha I still can’t believe it. I dreamed you up and you came true.
"The most caring, kindhearted and inspiring person I’ve had the privilege to know. Now lets go have a big ol’ partyyyyyyyy."
Dennis shared the same image and wrote next to it: "When I first laid eyes on this beautiful human more than eight years ago, our souls connected in a way, I never knew existed.

"You have helped me grow into the man I am today and to see you touch the lives of so many, inspires me to become the best version of myself.
"You are kind, you are pure – you are compassionate & loving… and you are quite frankly the most beautiful woman I ever got to lay eyes on.
"I am happy and proud to announce this next step in our beautiful journey. My wife to be. Now let’s turn 2019 into a party."
He and Leona met in 2010 when Dennis was working as her back-up dancer.
They’ve kept their relationship under wraps since then, but sparked speculation in August when Leona posted a video of herself on Instagram seemingly waving an engagement ring around.
She told People magazine today: "We are both quite private people, but we wanted to share our happy news with everyone that has supported us and watched our relationship blossom over the years."
