James Toseland and singer Katie Melua are getting married. The two-time World Superbike champion made the announcement today on Facebook.
Toseland writes: "Hey everyone, I've got some happy news to share with you, I asked Katie to marry me and she said yes! As you can imagine, I am a very happy man right now."
You may think that Toseland's accomplishments on the track won the heart of Melua, but apparently, she isn't a fan of racing. Toseland previously said:
"Katie has been great. She had no interest in me whatsoever because I was a motorcycle racer. She hadn't heard of me... She wouldn't even know what Valentino Rossi looked like."
Now that Toseland has ended his racing career (due to an injury) the singer is finally paying attention to him. Toseland and Melua have been dating since last April.
Melua's company, Dramatico Entertainment, released a statement confirming the engagement: "Following speculation in the press, Dramatico Entertainment are delighted to confirm the engagement of Katie Melua and James Toseland. We wish them happiness in their life together."
