Richie and Madden are getting married!

The couple who began dating in late 2006 have finally decided to tie the knot. Richie was spotted showing off her ring last night when she was out for dinner in New York with her rockstar boyfriend.

News hit this morning that Madden had proposed on Valentine's Day but it's now revealed the pair have been engaged for a while. It has been revealed that his Twitter post which read "Yep. I'm engaged. Very happy. Yeah we've been engaged for a while so you're all kind of late on that. But, thanks for the hoopla all the same" has since been removed.

Despite the media circus of late, Richie says she is over the moon about the news and was reportedly very thankful when a fan congratulated her on the upcoming wedding.

A source has revealed that the socialite and jewellery designer is “beyond thrilled and so excited to start planning her dream wedding.”

The couple who have two children together, Harlow Winter Kate Madden and Sparrow James Midnight Madden are yet to set a date, but no guesses as to who the flower girl will be.
