Singer Amy Winehouse Engaged
The 23-year-old "Rehab" singer says she's marrying the boyfriend who inspired some of her songs
Singer Amy Winehouse is engaged to boyfriend Blake Fielder-Civil, a source close to the singer confirms to PEOPLE.
Fielder-Civil, a 23-year old gofer for music videos, proposed earlier this week with a diamond ring from Tiffany.
“I’m a very lucky girl to have found someone I love so much,” Winehouse, 23, told the U.K.’s The Sun newspaper, flashing her ring. “I hope to be with him for the rest of my life. We haven’t set a date yet or anything like that.”
The pair first started dating two and a half years ago, and Winehouse – who told PEOPLE in March that she has “12 or 13 tattoos … I haven’t counted” – promptly tattooed his name above her left breast. The pair later split because Fielder-Civil was also in another relationship – an experience that inspired Winehouse to write the track “Tears Dry On Their Own” on her album Back to Black.
Earlier this year, Winehouse split with her boyfriend of nearly a year, chef Alex Claire. A month ago, she and Fielder-Civil got back together.
Winehouse told The Sun: “He proposed at home a few days ago and I took a day to finally agree. Obviously we are both young and it is frightening. But it is the right thing to do. That is why I agreed.”
