Westlife’s Mark Feehily has announced he’s engaged to his boyfriend of five years.
The Irish singer has chosen to keep his partner out of the spotlight for the duration of their relationship and has never even publicly revealed his name.
Mark announced the happy news in an Instagram post while on holiday in the Maldives, showing off his engagement ring. In another photo the couple were shown walking along the beach with their backs to the camera.
He captioned the post: “2019 has been so amazing to me so far and it’s only getting started! I wanted to be the first to say it… Engaged.”
Mark previously opened up about his relationship to RSVP Live, revealing that his mystery man is Irish and “far from quiet”.
Speaking about his decision to keep their relationship private, Mark said: “He is not quiet believe me, he is far from quiet, but he has no experience whatsoever in the music industry and he is quite shy about coming to the red carpet.
“A lot of people ask me his name and it is not that I don’t say his name, it is his thing to say and if he wants to be in a magazine then that’s his choice.”
Mark also discussed the possibility of starting a family sometime in the future.
“I do really believe that I would be a great job… I would be a great Dad, we would be great parents” he said.
“I am looking into all the options and obviously it is a little more complex for a gay couple than a heterosexual couple because they can just do it- literally.
“I am more ready now then I ever have been, I have never felt more eager and broody.”
Mark is also set to be pretty busy this year, as Westlife begin their 20th anniversary tour in May.
The tour kicks off in Belfast on May 25, 2019 and runs until July 5, 2019 with a performance in Dublin’s Croke Park.
