The 41-year-old reality star – who is still legally married to third husband Kieran Hayler – made the shock announcement during an appearance on Thursday’s edition of Loose Women.

As the studio audience burst into cheers, the giddy star enthused: ‘I’ve got the man, the ring, life is fantastic!’
The cost of the ring – a 3 carat round brilliant and a three-row diamond band – has been estimated at £65,000-£70,000 by WP Diamonds CEO and diamond expert Andrew Brown.
Katie – who shares children Jett, four, and Bunny, five, with Kieran, Princess, 12, Junior, 14, with her first husband Peter Andre and son Harvey, 17, with former fling Dwight Yorke – revealed the news would come as a surprise to everyone except for her mum Amy.
Discussing what makes personal trainer Kris lucky number four, the TV personality explained he’s one of the only men who has ever put her in her place.
‘The thing is, he puts me in my place, he’s strict with me and I’m not used to that’, she said. ‘He’s a good guy, he’s so good with Harvey, Harvey is obsessed with him’.’
Katie has been dating personal trainer Kris, 29, on and off since May 2018.
The reality TV stalwart has a chequered romantic past. She was famously married to Peter Andre from 2005 to 2009 after meeting on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.
That was quick: Katie has been dating personal trainer Kris, 29, on and off since May 2018 and the pair have had a rocky romance thus far

Admitting she was on the ‘rebound’ Katie started dating cage fighter Alex Reid a mere eight weeks later. The pair were married from 2010 to 2012 before their acrimonious split.
She then wed the father of her two youngest children, Kieran, in 2013 after a whirlwind romance and is still in the process of getting divorced from him.
What a rock! Katie proudly showed off the giant diamond, which has been estimated to be worth £65,000-£70,000
Their 2017 split – once again bitter – came amid allegations of new infidelities, three years after she caught him sleeping with her best friends Jane Poutney and Chrissy Thomas.
The glamour model – formerly known as Jordan – has been engaged SEVEN times in total, including to Gladiator star Warren Furman, businessman Scott Sullivan and model Leandro Penna.
In 1996, Katie, then a surgery-free 18-year-old, got engaged to Warren (better known as Ace), but they split in two years later.
She was also technically engaged to Scott, but has since admitted her heart wasn’t in it when he gave her a ring just before she was about to enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle in 2004, where she famously met Pete.
Katie never made it down the aisle with Argentinian Leandro, who she was betrothed to for six months in 2012, citing the language barrier as a reason for their split.
Quizzed about her tumultuous relationship with third husband Kieran on Loose Women, Katie said she has managed to forgive him for his infidelities – and even claimed her ex still has feelings for her.

Still legally married: Katie is still officially married to third husband Kieran Hayler, with whom she raises her youngest children Jett, five, and Bunny, four
She said: ‘We would never split up if he hadn’t behaved badly. We’ve got two kids together so nice when you get on with your ex when you’ve got children.
‘We’ve got banter… Everyone still says Kieran still likes me.’
Asked whether her exes get on, she said it was ‘good’ that Kieran and Kris were amicable.
She made the surprising revelation that her frosty relationship with first husband Peter was finally starting to thaw.
The blonde said: ‘I am talking to Pete, sort of a bit more, I talk to [his wife] Emily MacDonagh more. Things are actually going well.’
It was reported earlier this week that she plans to get pregnant with twins and has secretly filmed scenes at an IVF clinic with Kris for their reality show My Crazy Life.
Explaining why she went to the fertility clinic, Katie said: ‘I had a miscarriage last year and I’ve had one this year. I’ve had more in the past.
Dropping hints: Katie had hinted at the engagement three days ago with a cryptic Instagram post, which she captioned, ‘I love this man @krisboyson so much #marriage #babies #life’

Sartorial statement: Katie chose an unconventional look for her big reveal, donning a sequinned jersey and biker shorts
‘I went to the fertility clinic because I’m 41 now and I still want more kids. I was so shocked with what he said to me because I still think I’m young. Reality hit home with some of the things he said to me.’
If she and Kris cannot conceive a baby naturally then Katie would still be open to adopting an unwanted child, something she has considered in the past.
‘I’ve always wanted more babies, I’ve spoken about adoption and I wouldn’t rule that either’, Katie said.
The pin-up went on to open up about the tragic miscarriages she’s suffered in the past and admitted that she was forced to ‘grieve’ alone and tried to ‘just get on with it’.
She said: ‘I’ve had more than three miscarriages in my life. The thing is you grieve them and when you’re self-employed like myself you just have to get on with it you have to grieve on your own.
‘I mean it is a lot and it doesn’t matter what kind of person you are each person deals with it differently and some people get really down and get mental health issues about it or you get people who are matter of fact and try and get on with it.

Katie and Kris originally met through Love Island star Rykard Jenkins at Essex hotspot Sheesh.
They were first linked in May 2018, going Instagram official one month later.
The path to true love hasn’t been smooth, however, since Katie went out with toyboy Alex Adderson behind Kris’ back in August 2018, causing the pair to split.
It wasn’t long before they reconnected and Kris has been ever present in her life – and on her reality show – ever since.
In March 2019, Kris allegedly told Katie she needed to lose weight and even banned her from takeaways in a live stream video.
He told her: ‘You shouldn’t be eating that, you need to be losing weight’, before adding, ‘People are bored of you, you’re boring them.
She has been hinting non-stop that Kris is ‘husband material’ and joking about getting engaged again in recent months.
Katie had hinted at the engagement three days ago with a cryptic Instagram post, which she captioned: ‘I love this man @krisboyson so much #marriage #babies #life’.
