Catherine Tyldesley: 'Tom is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with'
In a previous issue of HELLO! magazine, Catherine, 30, revealed that – given how she was single this time last year – she can't quite believe how much change she's been through.
"If you'd told me that before my next birthday I was going to meet someone as amazing as Tom, the person I want to spend the rest of my life with, and that we were going to be planning for our first baby, I would not have believed you in a million years," said Catherine.
"It's crazy," she added. "It's like everything has gone fast forward, but it's not remotely scary. It just feels 100 per cent right, which is very different for me because I am the world's most indecisive person. I will ask everybody's opinion on everything, whereas I am totally sure about this."
Catherine nominated for sexiest female
The HELLO! Online blogger added that she knew almost immediately after meeting Tom that he was the man for her.
"People say that when you meet the right man you know," she said. "But I never ever believed that. I thought, 'No, you need to get to know someone.' But after three months of being with Tom I knew he was absolutely The One. And it’s the most amazing feeling."
