Kerry Katona is engaged to Ryan Mahoney after two years of dating.

The former Atomic Kitten took to Instagram to announce the news, after Ryan popped the question on a trip to Spain with Kerry’s five children for her 40th birthday.

Sharing a collection of snaps from the trip, Kerry wrote: “Well what a bloody amazing 40th I’ve had. Honestly couldn’t of spent it any better with the people I love the most.. and with a massive twist too… here we go again!” adding the emojis: “❤️????????”

Speaking to OK Magazine, a source close to the couple said Ryan asked for the blessing of Kerry’s five children prior to getting down on one knee.

“Ryan is really close to all of Kerry’s kids so he made sure he involved them before asking for Kerry’s hand in marriage,” the insider revealed.

“He got Kerry a massive two carat diamond ring and showed it to the girls first and they all loved it.

“They were all together celebrating Kerry’s 40th birthday early and Ryan popped the question outside on their villa’s balcony.”

Kerry was previously married three times, first to Westlife singer Brian McFadden when she was 21 for two years – sharing two daughters Molly and Lilly.

In 2007, the reality star married taxi driver Mark Croft, the father of her children Max and Heidi, before divorcing in 2011.

Kerry’s third husband George Kay tragically died last year, leaving behind their daughter DJ. The former couple split in 2017.
