As we are certain you are aware, this year is a leap year, so we at Mad About Diamonds have been keeping our eyes open as to which ladies have popped the big question to their partners. The first to catch our eye is Loose Women presenter Lisa Maxwell who proposed to her boyfriend Paul Jessup earlier today. But did she use a diamond engagement ring to seal the deal?
The couple have been together since 1997 and have a daughter together. Lisa made the announcement on the ITV show Loose Women which she presents with Andrea McLean, Carol McGiffin and Jane McDonald. Lisa said it was something the couple have always talked about but a proposal has never come of it, so she just decided to go ahead and ask him to marry her, he replied ‘Of course I will’. Lisa added that she had been joking for weeks about the up and coming leap year but Paul didn’t believe she would do it. Speaking about her romantic proposition on Loose Women, she said: The fact we know where our lives are going, I was thinking what's the big surprise? The only thing we don't have is marriage.
