On Saturday morning (August 26, 2017) the British Sun-Times reported James Blunt and girlfriend, to be shopping for engagement rings.
Prior to the global release of James Blunt’s audacious new album, The Afterlove, on March 24, the artist has a declaration to make.
‘I’m shitting myself,’ Blunt confesses cheerfully, tucking into his lunch in a cosy West London pub.
“So many people would flip but if the couple at some point announced they were engaged I’d be happy,” tweeted one fan. On Sunday, James Blunt’s rep said “no comment” when asked whether the 43-year-old singer was tying the knot.
The event will reportedly be live-streamed on their website.
