The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran is engaged
Siva Kaneswaran is officially off the market! The 25-year-old Wanted singer is engaged to longtime girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey. Kaneswaran confirmed the exciting news and shared his romantic proposal story in a new interview with U.K.'s Hello! magazine.
"I found out Nareesha was planning a surprise party on my birthday with her family so I thought perfect!" the Irish boy bander told Hello!. "I'd bought the ring months before I'd been trying to figure out the right time."
During the party, Kaneswaran got down on one knee and popped the question with a three-carat diamond solitaire ring.
"I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by ... for you to be my wife," he recalled. "It was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn't even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise."
Kaneswaran and shoe designer McCaffrey have been dating for six years. Hello! magazine reports that Kaneswaran almost fainted when McCaffrey initially said no to his proposal, but she later changed her mind. "I'm still in shock," McCaffrey explained to the magazine. "I don't like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can't wait to start planning the wedding."
Kaneswaran's Wanted band member Tom Parker shared his congratulations to the couple on Twitter on Dec. 9. "Just got to say I'm totally over the moon for @SivaTheWanted and @Nare_esha. I'm expecting a position as bridesmaid," he joked.
