Russell Brand pops the question – and Katy Perry says YES!

Posted by Dean Piper On December 29th, 2009

Allow me to be the first to congratulate my favourite comedian Russell Brand and US pop princess Katy Perry on their engagement.
I hear the pair talked marriage and Russell officially popped the question during her quick trip to the UK last week for a pre-Christmas get together – and the pair are beyond thrilled by the fact that they’re heading up the aisle.
My source close to Brand tells me: “Russell knows Katy’s the one for him.
“He’s never been into a girl like he has with her and they’re besotted. He asked her to marry him last week and she quickly said yes.
“They don’t know when the wedding will be but they are planning to make it in 2010 if the schedules can work.”
But I hear it didn’t go quite according to plan – because Katy wasn’t happy with the pricey Cartier ring that Russell presented to her. He’s now on the hunt for a suitable ring to give her on New Year’s Eve.
My impeccable source continues: “Russell is searching for a ring designer to make up a ring in time for New Year after the pair discussed what they wanted to have.
“It’s a race against time because Russell wants to have it ready for New Year’s Eve.
“Katy’s stylist friend and Russell’s people have been quietly making enquiries for the couple so they can find exactly what they want.
“Katy’s thrilled with Russell and how he is making so much effort. Russell also has the approval of Katy’s ­parents and everyone in the pair’s close circle know about the engagement.”
Katy and Russell, who’ve been dating since October, looked quite the romantic couple last week when they took advantage of the snow to sledge down a hill on Hampstead Heath.
And Katy’s delighted the Brit comedian has made such a good impression on her very religious parents. I couldn’t be happier for the pair, who have clearly clicked more than any of us ever thought they would.
And knowing this couple it’s going to be a real occasion to dress up – the question is will Katy be wearing Russell’s special West Ham underwear (like she did at the
European MTV Awards) on the big day?!
What about a West Ham ­garter..?
