Is Adele Engaged?

23 Feb

The Someone Like You singer sported  two rings on her engagement finger at the BRITs on Tuesday, one of which appeared to be a simple band, and a chunky yellow teardrop stone… The 23-year-old appears to enjoy toying with fans and photographers, having worn a different ring on her engagement finger at the Grammys two weeks ago.

Adele has made no secret of the fact she is loved up with her boyfriend Simon Konecki, in an interview with US Vogue the star said she would take up to five years off in order to focus on her relationship with Old Etonian charity fundraiser Konecki saying: “I am f***ing off for four or five years. If I am constantly working, my relationships fail. So, at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy” Rather poignantly she added: “And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married.”

The couple made their first public appearance at the Grammys two weeks ago, but have been dating since last summer.

Sinead O´Connor Gets Married

9 Dec

Sinead O´Connor of the “Nothing compares 2 U” fame married her therapist boyfriend, Barry Herridge, 38, on the evening of her 45th birthday. They said “I do” in the back of a vintage pink Cadillac at a drive-through chapel in Las Vegas! She described the ceremony on her blog as “too glorious for words”,  posted a picture of an empty chapel with the caption “photo of the celebrity guests at our wedding”, and promised to tell all soon. The Irish bride apparently wore a low-cut, pink dress and the groom wore a matching pink shirt under his jacket. After the ceremony, candles were lit and all the chapel staff sang Happy Birthday to the singer.Image by

Tha happy couple met in August after she advertised for a man on Twitter, saying she was “in desperate need of a very sweet, sex-starved man” along with a list of requirements! Barry responded to the ad with an email, of which Sinead said “It just took my heart away. It had to be him.” This is the 4th marriage for Sinead.

The marriage comes just a week after the mother-of-four joked to Hot Press magazine: “I’ve been married three times, really I should only have been married once. And no-one should be married more than f***in’ twice, to be honest.”

Let´s hope it´s fourth (!) time lucky!

A Train Proposal!

11 Nov

A train marriage proposal has become an online hit across the world after it was posted on Youtube! The video starts with a familiar scene of a packed commuter train before one passenger starts singing..Others join in one by one, until the 25-strong choir are all singing in harmony when bang on cue, 35-year-old Adam King, who sings as part of the Adam Street Singers, drops down on one knee and asks his girlfriend Lucy Rogers to marry him. She quickly accepts before bursting into tears.

Adam organised for the other singers in his group to board the train which he takes home with his girlfriend most nights and serenade her with a rendition of the Bill Withers song, Lovely Day, before he popped the question.

A great deal of thought and planning went into making the proposal perfect. The choir started work on project-train-proposal back in April! Romantic Adam also had to be careful that his girlfriend of 6 years didn’t spot any of his fellow choir singers on the train as many of them are mutual friends of the couple…

The inventive marriage proposal only happened on November 1st, but in the short space of time it’s been available to view online, it’s received half a million hits and sparked interest from TV channels around the world.

What a romantic gesture, it made me teary watching it! Here at Bodastory we wish all the best to the lovely couple 🙂
