Looks like wedding bells are in the air for Tom Parker and his girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick.
The 27-year-old singer – best known for being a member of British band The Wanted – took to Twitter to announce the happy news. Tweeting to his 1.03 million followers, Parker revealed that they got engaged over the weekend.

Having been dating for nearly 7 years since 2009, Parker finally got down on one knee to pop the question. In a recent interview and photo shoot with Hello! magazine, the Bolton-raised musician opened up about how the whole proposal (which took 3 months to plan) went down.
“There was a trail of rose petals leading to the TV, where I’d set up a montage of all our pictures from the day we met until now, with a song playing in the background that our friend wrote especially for us. I was crying my eyes out at this point,” he revealed.
Once Hardwick reached the end of the trail, she turned around, and there was her boyfriend, down on one knee with an engagement ring in his hand. “I literally could not get my words out, I was so overcome with emotion,” Parker told the British mag. No wedding date has been set yet, but it’s safe to assume Parker will be a sobbing mess when Hardwick walks down the aisle.
So does this mean the other boys from The Wanted – Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes – will be making an appearance at the wedding? It has been 2 years since the band went their separate ways, a group photo is long overdue. Parker said, “I’d love the boys to be ushers.”
Aside from his former bandmates, the pair is also keen on inviting the Beckhams and former label mate Justin Bieber. “I love David, Victoria and the kids,” the singer added. The Wanted formed a close bond with the famous family after performing at Romeo’s 10th birthday party in Los Angeles in 2012.
Congrats to the happy couple!
