Speaking to singer Sebastian Yatra about when they got engaged, Brooklyn said: "Over a year ago now. I got like a bunch of flowers and candles. I got down on one knee and got the ring out and she didn't have a clue what I was doing.

"She just started crying her eyes out, but she didn't say yes for like five minutes. I was sweating like 'oh no,' it was a long five minutes."

Brooklyn and Nicola met in 2019 and announced their engagement in July 2020. Like so many couples, coronavirus has had an impact on their wedding plans, and Brooklyn recently told HELLO! that they would have liked to have married already if it weren't for the pandemic.

"We've been engaged for a year and if Covid wasn't a thing we’d have liked to have been married already, and it has been a bit difficult," said Brooklyn. "You know, I’ve only just started to travel again, I’m travelling a little bit now but hopefully, it'll be next year."

The London-born star has also relocated to the US and now lives in Beverly Hills with his wife-to-be, and said that they are so happy together it means he hasn't found it difficult moving away from his family – mum Victoria, dad David, and siblings Romeo, Cruz and Harper.

"No, because I'm marrying my best friend so we kind of have our own little bubble together now and it's just really nice," he confessed.
