After weeks of speculation, Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor are officially engaged!
The reality TV couple and fashion designers have just returned from the Greek Island of Mykonos, where Hugo whisked Millie off to celebrate her 28th birthday. Little did Millie know, this would turn into a trip of a life-time as Hugo got down on one knee to pop the question! The couple have been posting idyllic images on Instagram of their Greek holiday, with Millie very cleverly disguising her engagement ring in the snaps, but fans had their suspicions after Millie captioned an image with ‘best birthday ever’….
However, a representative for Hugo Taylor told Mail Online ‘ I can confirm that Hugo and Millie did get engaged whilst they were on holiday in Greece’ leaving fans jumping to congratulate the happy couple who have been reunited for just over a year.
Millie and businessman Hugo previously dated back in 2011 on E4 reality show Made In Chelsea, before splitting following the discovery that Hugo had kissed Millie’s ‘then-bestfriend’ Rosie Fortescue. At the time, Millie revealed how despite this break in their relationship she would always love Hugo, saying:
‘I loved him – those feelings don’t disappear – but I just always have to remind myself why we’re not together…I do think that, for the rest of my life, every time I see him, I’ll get that feeling in my stomach. I don’t think I could ever not get that butterfly feeling’
Having matured and had time to grow up, Millie revealed to ‘Red’ that her relationship with Hugo is completely different compared to during their MIC years! she said:
‘I’m really happy and we have fun. Our relationship is a totally different thing now. We’ve known each other for ten years and dated when we were much younger [but] it was a different thing, a whirlwind. It was definitely weird dating someone when there was a camera there, but only there for half of what was going on.’
The engagement comes after the two rekindled their romance in May 2016, following Millie’s amicable divorce from Rapper Professor Green. This then seen the pair go public for the first tine when they travelled to Monaco’s Grand Prix for Hugo’s 30th birthday celebrations and they have been inseparable ever since.
So following a year of lavish holidays, giving us major insta-envy and loved-up snaps Millie and Hugo are now set to be married. Congratulations to the happy couple!
