Nicole Scherzinger is engaged to marry her racing driver boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, according to the singer's dad.

Alfonso Valiente reveals Hamilton has proposed to the Pussycat Dolls frontwoman - and she accepted.

He tells Britain's Mail on Sunday, "Yes, they are engaged. My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down-to-earth. My family all like him. The good spirit is there...

"He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy."

Scherzinger began dating the British Formula 1 ace after they met in 2007. They called off their relationship last year to concentrate on their careers before reuniting.

 

*UPDATE* "Hi all:) Just to reaffirm, Alfonso was misquoted... Lewis and I are not engaged. But thanks for the love and support!" - Nicole Scherzinger insists her father never actually told a British tabloid she was set to wed Formula 1 race driver Lewis Hamilton.
