The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran engaged to longtime girlfriend

Posted on

Sorry, ladies, The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran is officially off the market!

According to People, the British boy-band member has proposed to his longtime girlfriend, shoe designer Nareesha McCafferey; the two have been dating for six years.

Kaneswaran opened up to U.K.’s Hello! Magazine about the engagement, saying he popped the question during a surprise birthday party with her family that McCafferey was actually planning for him. “I said to her I wanted a present I would always remember this year by…for you to be my wife,” the singer said. “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.”

He also revealed that McCafferey initially said no to his proposal but has since had a change of heart. Kaneswaran’s fiancée opened up about her initial denial, saying, “I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy — I can’t wait to start planning the wedding.”
