After only five months with his girlfriend Annabel Dimmock, Chris Hughes has claimed that he is ready to propose “very soon.”
It comes after the pro golfer was photographed with glittering jewelry on her ring finger on a romantic holiday to the Maldives, sparking engagement rumors.
After the couple moved in together at the end of last year, the 28-year-old Love Island star stated he is pleased with the direction his relationship is taking and feels “very comfortable.”
“It won’t take long… “When we went to the Maldives last month, even Annabel’s friends messaged her, it was extremely last minute,” Chris told the Mail Online.
“Everyone assumed I was going to propose because of the time of year.” I’m not sure if Annabel did… ‘Do you think Chris could propose?’ her mother asked.
“I’m a really family-oriented person; it’s just how I was raised, and Annabel’s family is the same.”
“I feel really settled today in terms of moving into a new property well before November,” he continued.
“I am quite settled in my life as a whole, and that is exactly where I wanted to be.”
The couple recently returned from a sun-drenched vacation in the Maldives, and their followers were quick to notice the gold on her ring finger.
In the video, the two couldn’t take their hands or their eyes off each other as they gazed adoringly at each other in their Scuba Diving gear.
Pro golfer Annabel, 24, put what appeared to be her left hand to her face as she giggled with her hunky beau, which eagle-eyed fans would have seen.
The beautiful silver ring on Annabel’s left hand drew attention to the jewelry on her wedding finger.
But this isn’t the first time the couple’s social media photos have prompted engagement rumors.
Chris’ Instagram account also posted a snapshot of the Love Island star clutching the brunette beauty’s left hand on the beach during their magical Maldives vacation.
Fans demanded to know if he had “asked the question” in the comments section.
“Did she say yes?” wondered former Towie star Mario Falcone.
“Please tell us you’re engaged,” another fan urged. “You two are the cutest when you’re together!”
“Have you offered yet?” inquired a third.
Another follower expressed their feelings by commenting, “I can see a ring for Christmas.”
Chris told The Sun in October that after only two months together, he knew Annabel was ‘The One.’
He commented at the time, “Yeah, I think she could be The One… hopefully marriage, that would be the dream.”
“We have a lot in common, and we’re both headed in the same direction.
“Our relationship and values, which I believe are really crucial in today’s partnerships, it’s critical that you’re both on the same page and in the same mindset.
“Everything is going great, and I couldn’t be happier.”
