Louis Tomlinson plans to propose to his girlfriend.

The One Direction hunk wants to pop the question to his girlfriend Eleanor Calder, both 21, on their two-year anniversary which falls on November 27.

A source told The Daily Star newpsaper: ''So Louis thinks it's time to make it official.

''In November, it'll be two years since they fell in love, and he's told pals he thinks it'd be a perfect time to properly ask her to marry him.

''He really wants her to know just how important she is to him.''

This comes only weeks after band mate Zayn Malik proposed to his girlfriend, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, who has been spotted with a diamond sparkler on her ring finger.

The source added: ''Louis and Eleanor are already practically engaged, really.

''They've always been very open when it comes to talking about marriage, and often discuss what kind of wedding they'll have.

''Now that Zayn and Perrie have got engaged, it's naturally cropped up even more.''

Louis has previously admitted it ''hasn't been easy'' for his girlfriend to adjust to the amount of attention he receives as a member of the chart-topping 'Best Song Ever' boy band.

The singer previously said: ''It hasn't been easy at times. She gets pretty intimidated by it all. I mean, who wouldn't? She can't have Twitter or anything like that.

''At first, I was like, 'Just chill out a bit, it's fine', but now I understand where she's coming from. I can't expect her to deal with some of the stuff so easily. But with that said, I couldn't be happier with her.''
