British singer Robbie Williams has fuelled speculation he's preparing to wed his girlfriend, just weeks after causing a media storm following a joke proposal on Australian radio.
The Angels hitmaker asked partner Ayda Field to marry him during an interview on a Sydney radio station in November (09), but later revealed the announcement was a hoax.
His mother Jan was adamant the proposal was real - forcing Williams to issue an official denial on his website.
But the 35 year old cemented his commitment to Field over the Christmas (09) period, proposing to her on Tuesday (29Dec09), according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "He just couldn't help himself - he's like an excitable puppy. He wanted to wait until midnight on New Year's Eve to pop the question, but just couldn't hang on. So he proposed at home on Tuesday night.
"Despite all the previous speculation about them getting hitched Ayda was still very surprised. She was thrilled and said yes straight away."
As the loved-up couple walked through Los Angles on Sunday (03Jan10), Field was spotted sporting a dazzling diamond on her ring finger.
