British model Jodie Kidd is set to marry boyfriend David Blakeley after a whirlwind romance.
The blonde beauty met her ex-army soldier beau last summer (13), and in December (13), Blakeley proposed while on holiday in India.
The couple has now shared the news of their secret engagement in an interview with Hello! magazine, in which Kidd gushes, "It's absolutely brilliant. We are totally chuffed (pleased) and on cloud nine.
"David and I got on from the start and things have moved quickly. We are in love and very happy. He is an amazing man."
Blakeley adds, "I've never felt like this before. I knew it was different from the moment I met Jodie. I absolutely feel it is something extremely special and unique and irreplaceable with Jodie.
This is the first marriage for Blakeley, whose 2012 book, Pathfinder: A Special Forces Mission Behind Enemy Lines, became a best seller, and the second for Kidd, who split from internet entrepreneur Aidan Butler after an 18 months union in 2007.
She also has a two-year-old son called Indio from her previous relationship with Andrea Vianini.
