Example - Example: 'Fiancee Is Out Of My League'

British hip-hop star Example was so shocked when Australian model Erin Mcnaught agreed to go on a date with him, he vowed to propose to her as soon as possible.

The couple became engaged in November (12), less than a year after they started dating, and the rapper - real name Elliot Gleave - admits the whirlwind romance was fuelled by fears he is not hunky enough for the former Miss Australia.

Gleave is adamant the brunette beauty is out of his league because he is "funny looking", so he made sure to get a ring on her finger as quickly as he could.

He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I'm definitely punching well above my weight. Usually if I met an attractive girl I would think, 'What is she with me for because I'm funny looking,' but when they are famous and they aren't after money or fame I thought, 'She must genuinely like me and my funny face.'

"So when she went out with me I thought, 'I'm going to snap this one up and get a ring on her finger Asap'. Ideally I wanted an Australian wife, getting Miss Australia was a bonus."
