Siva Kaneswaran and Nareesha McCaffrey have been dating for six years

The Wanted singer Siva Kaneswaran became engaged to his longtime girlfriend Nareesha McCaffrey over the weekend.

Siva Kaneswaran Engaged To Nareesha McCaffrey

Kaneswaran, who’s been dating shoe designer McCaffrey for the last six years, proposed to her on his own birthday – on which his girlfriend had planned a party for him.

"I found out Nareesha was planning a surprise party on my birthday with her family so I thought perfect!" he told Hello!. "I'd bought the ring months before I'd been trying to figure out the right time."

Kaneswaran's Proposal

At the surprise party, the 25-year-old singer got down on one knee with a three-carat diamond solitaire ring and asked McCaffrey to marry him. In his proposal, he asked McCaffrey’s hand in marriage to be his birthday gift.

“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."

The boy bander initially didn’t get the enthusiastic "yes" he was hoping for, as McCaffrey was taken aback by the surprise. The delayed “yes” reportedly caused Kaneswaran to nearly faint. In the end, however, she gladly accepted the ring and her boyfriend’s proposal.

"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."

Despite McCaffrey’s hesitantion, Kanesawaran feels as certain of his love for her as ever. “ I love her,” he said. “I love every bit of her.”

The Wanted Singers Congratulate Kaneswaran

Kaneswaran's The Wanted group mates Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes have since taken to Twitter to congratulate the newly engaged pair.
