Congratulations are in order for Alexandra Burke who has confirmed her engagement to Josh Ginnelly.

The Strictly Come Dancing star proudly flashed her engagement ring in an Instagram photo after weeks of speculation that Ginnelly had proposed. However the exciting news is bittersweet as Burke, 29, also noted how her late mother is not around to celebrate with them.

In an Instagram post on Sunday (7 January), the X Factor winner gushed: “Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected. My soul mate and my love asked me something that I could only have dreamt of. Being in love is one of the most magical feelings life has to offer.”

Burke shows off her stunning diamond ring by holding out her palm with the words: “I said yes!” written in black marker, while a blurred backdrop shows the happy couple sharing a kiss. The pop star also revealed that Ginnelly popped the question on 18 December.

The Broken Heels singer continued: “So grateful for this amazing man in my life who has supported my family and I through so much. We decided to keep this between us for a while to enjoy this special moment and that’s why we haven’t said anything…”

18-12- 17 🇫🇷 I said YES! Smiling as I type this because it was the best day ever in Paris and so unexpected. My soul mate and my love asked me something that I could only have dreamt of. Being in love is one of the most magical feelings life has to offer. So grateful for this amazing man in my life who has supported my family and I through so much. We decided to keep this between us for a while to enjoy this special moment and that’s why we haven’t said anything… Something so amazing honestly felt so overwhelming because there was only one person I wanted to call when it happened. I know she is smiling and very happy for us both – because little did I know she knew about it. 😇 For those who guessed and have left such beautiful messages – thank you. Josh is someone who makes me so happy and I’ve never felt this kind of love before. Here’s to an amazing future that’s filled with love, joy and so much happiness. I love you Joshua Ginnelly. I can’t wait to see what our future brings and what God provides for us xxx

Giving special mention to her mum, Melissa Bell, who died in August, Burke said: “Something so amazing honestly felt so overwhelming because there was only one person I wanted to call when it happened. I know she is smiling and very happy for us both – because little did I know she knew about it.

“For those who guessed and have left such beautiful messages – thank you. Josh is someone who makes me so happy and I’ve never felt this kind of love before. Here’s to an amazing future that’s filled with love, joy and so much happiness. I love you Joshua Ginnelly. I can’t wait to see what our future brings and what God provides for us.”

In the weeks since the engagement, Burke has consciously hidden her ring finger after speculation mounted about the engagement. Burke has been dating Ginnelly since April 2016 and he notably supported the performer during her stint on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2017.

Thank you Thailand for the best 10 days! Smiling and good food with great company is amazing for the soul. 🌴🍊☀️🌊
