Greg took to Instagram to share the happy news.  Sharing an adorable snap of them together he said:

Oh while we’re doing announcements, here’s something else…I’m having the time of my life and enjoying my work more than ever. I feel really content and it’s nice to have my shit together before I undertake a huge new work challenge.

“One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person. This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her. I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I’ve ever met.

“The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5am alarms. That said, it’s been quite a year.”

It is believed that Bella is a freelance journalist; however it is unknown how long they have been dating. Greg has previously been quiet about his relationship, preferring to keep them out of the headlines – although he did famously date pop star Ellie Goulding in 2011.

With two huge announcements for the star, Greg is certainly having a fantastic year! We absolutely LOVE that Bella proposed to him – what do you think ladies? Would you propose to your other half?

Congratulations to the happy couple!
