Maria Fowler has got engaged.

The former "The Only Way is Essex" star and her boyfriend Kelvin Batey - who have 15-month-old daughter Evie - are to marry after he popped the question while they were on holiday in Paris.

Maria posted a picture of her ring and a lock and key on Instagram and wrote: "I SAID YES #Engaged #Paris2017 (sic)"

The brunette beauty's lock is engraved with the words: "Kelvin and Maria. Engaged in Paris. December 2017. Our next Chapter. Together - Always X (sic)"

After giving birth in September 2016, Maria revealed she lost half of her body's blood while delivering her daughter, and urged others to give blood.
