Stacey Solomon is set to get married.

The reality TV star will tie the knot to her long-term boyfriend Aaron Barham after he popped the question on a romantic carriage ride in New York's Central Park.

Her spokesman Max Clifford confirmed: "Stacey and Aaron are engaged and we're all absolutely thrilled for them.

"They're a lovely genuine couple who get on so well. It's a wonderful finale to what has been a tremendous year for her."

The former 'x factor' contestant - who has three-year-old son Zac from a previous relationship - is expecting the couple's first child in May.

Stacey - who won jungle reality TV show 'I'm a celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!' in 2010 - took to her twitter account to reveal Aaron had asked her for hand in marriage.

She tweeted: "I can't believe he's finally asked me."

But her photographer father David has ruled himself out of taking the official pictures on the brunette beauty's big day.

He said: "I will have father of the bride duties to carry out - so I will be taking a day off from work."

In October, Stacey, 22, revealed the pair are "really excited" about expecting their first child together.

She explained: "We are really excited. And I'm really looking forward to everything, knowing I am sharing it with the person I want to spend my life with.

"I was nervous because we weren't planning a child. But the first thing he did was smile. As soon as I saw that, I knew everything would be OK."
