Wanted singer Kaneswaran to marry girlfriend

Chart-topping singer Siva Kaneswaran from boy band The Wanted has announced he is to marry his girlfriend of six years.

The music star turned the tables on Nareesha McCaffrey when she tried to throw him a surprise birthday bash – but he made it into an engagement party.

Kaneswaran told Hello! magazine: “It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn’t even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise.

The singer said he discovered the shoe designer was aiming to throw a party for him – but he then enlisted help to spring his own surprise. The occasion saw him on bended knee with a three-carat diamond solitaire ring which he had specially designed, as he asked her to be his wife.

Kaneswaran – who also posed for pictures with his bride-to-be for the magazine - went on: “I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by – for you to be my wife.

“I’d bought the ring months before I’d been trying to figure out the right time. I love her, I love every bit of her,” he added.

McCaffrey initially turned him down after being overwhelmed by the event, but then accepted.

“I’m still in shock. I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can’t wait to start planning the wedding,” she said.
