Eddie Redmayne is engaged.
The 32-year-old English actor popped the question to his girlfriend of more than two years, Hannah Bagshawe, his spokesperson tells Us Weekly.
A source told the outlet the proposal happened during a romantic vacation over America’s Memorial Day weekend last month, and apparently it came as little surprise to Hannah.
"He had been planning on it for a while. They have a very relaxed and supportive relationship… they seemed to have always known they were going to spend the rest of their lives together,” the source said.
The Les Misérables actor was reportedly intent on a traditional proposal, however.
"He asked her father's permission - the whole deal,” another insider said.
Us Weekly reports Eddie and Hannah made their public debut as a couple in 2012.
The couple are also said to share a home in London, with a source explaining Hannah “has been basically a part of the family for years now”.
It’s unclear when they will exchange vows.
Eddie’s love life has made headlines in the past. Last year, the British heartthrob was forced to deny rumours he dated Taylor Swift in 2011 while she was auditioning for Les Misérables.
“It was absolute nonsense,” he told UK magazine Glamour in early 2013.
“We had a chat behind the stage for seven minutes. So I met Taylor Swift for an hour and seven minutes. Even by my standards, that’s a pretty brief relationship! I find it offensive because it was [flails arms] I’ve ‘dumped’ her. Then you get emails from your friends going, ‘Dude, is it true…?’ ‘No!’ Then they don’t believe you.”
Asked if he had a girlfriend at the moment, Eddie remained tight-lipped.
“Sorry,” he replied. “It’s something I try to keep protected. I’ve done press with Kristen Stewart and it’s hard.”
