Sexy singer Sophie Ellis Bextor will wed the father of her baby Sonny after a 16-month romance.

The TAKE ME HOME beauty, 25, became pregnant within months of dating English musician Richard Jones, and the pair welcomed young Sonny prematurely in April (04).

Bassist Jones says, "I fooled Sophie by telling her I wasn't into getting married.

"I spent ages planning it. We went for a long weekend in Barcelona and had a few quite drinks on the beach. I even got down on one knee."

The happy couple plan to exchange nuptials at a tropical destination in June (05).

Bextor says, "I was stunned. But didn't have to think about saying yes."
