Natalie Appleton, 27, of the All Saints and Prodigy’s Liam Howlett, age unreported, are engaged to be married next year, her spokeswoman has announced. “I’m very excited, I love him to bits and I’ve never been happier,” Appleton said in a statement. (Natalie’s sister, Nicole, is expecting a baby fathered by bratty British rocker Liam Gallagher of Oasis.) Howlett, a classically trained pianist and acid house deejay, founded Prodigy in the early ’90s.
