Nicole Scherzinger's father has revealed that the former Pussycat Doll is engaged to her racing driver boyfriend, Lewis Hamilton.
Alfonso Valiente, revealed that the Lewis proposed to Nicole, and even referred to Hamilton as his "future son-in-law".
The 52-year-old told The Mail on Sundays Review magazine:
"You know about the proposal? 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."
Then, after announcing the news, Valiente then appeared to backtrack, explaining:
"Listen, I don't want to be the one to say that. I think you need to hear it from them.
"I don't want to be seen to say anything that might be wrong. I don't want to get in trouble."
The couple, who have been together for four years, met at the European Music Awards in Munich back in 2007.
Hamilton, 26, is currently in the middle of the Formula One season, with the next race taking place in Germany from the 23 July.
Thirty-three-year-old Nicole recently took up a place on the US X Factor judging panel, replacing Cheryl Cole.
