Jennifer Love Hewitt has given boyfriend Jamie Kennedy an engagement ultimatum - she wants a ring on her finger by June next year (09) or they will have "a situation".
The actress has been dating her Ghost Whisperer co-star since December (08) after calling off her marriage to fiance Ross MCCall.
But the star has not been put off by her broken engagement and is ready to commit to a future with Kennedy.
The couple sparked reports of an impending wedding at the end of last month (May09) when they were spotted jewellery shopping together.
Hewitt has dismissed the claims - but admits questions about their future together has put Kennedy on the spot.
She says, "A rumour has come out that Jamie and I supposedly got engaged. The poor guy was on fire. He was like, 'No, no, no. That's not true!' I was like, 'God, would that be the worst thing in the world?!'"
And Hewitt admits she's set a deadline to determine whether the relationship will last: "By this time next year, if we're not planning something, then there's a situation."
