Former TOWIE star Gemma Collins and Rami Hawash are officially engaged after first falling for each other 14 years ago
Gemma Collins is now engaged to Rami Hawash! The Diva Forever icon and her fiancé first found love 14 years ago.
Rami got to work on a romantic proposal in the Maldives and got down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage. According to sources, the reality star had no idea he was going to pop the question and was ‘shocked’ by the entire proposal.
“She is absolutely thrilled and she can’t believe it is finally happening,” a source said. “Rami had flown out hundreds of roses and there were thousands of petals. She didn’t know what was happening until a huge platter of cakes came out and as Gemma started eating her mango dessert, Rami surprised her and said, ‘look at that’.”
In new snaps, former TOWIE star Gemma was seen wearing a gorgeous orange flowing dress and a headpiece for her romantic dinner with Rami. Her new fiancé rocked a cream button-up shirt and white trousers for the special occasion. A dinner table covered in white cloth was placed on the beach. A heart was drawn around the table in the sand and the entire area around the couple was covered in red rose petals.
According to a source, ‘Will you marry me?’ was lit up in the sand. They added to The Sun that Gemma was clueless about the entire situation and assumed the couple were having a ‘relaxing dinner on the beach’. The insider added that the engagement ring is ‘absolutely amazing’.
Gemma’s relationship with Rami was on and off between 2011 and 2014, and he even made brief appearances on TOWIE. On Christmas Day in 2013, the couple got engaged but decided to call it off a few weeks later. Rami previously told The Mirror that Gemma’s high-maintenance ‘The GC’ persona was the reason for their split.
He said: “If I could have evicted The GC and lived with Gemma Collins, things would have been different. We might have been married with a family now.” They went on to date other people before finding their way back to each other during the coronavirus pandemic.
