The 28-year-old TV presenter revealed her boyfriend got down on one knee during a recent holiday to Anguilla in the Caribbean, while admitting the couple ‘just want to be together all the time’. Revealing her glittering engagement ring in a stunning shoot with Hello! magazine, Kelly said: ‘I’ve never felt this close to another human being, ever. People say we’re co-dependent but we just want to be together all the time.’
The Fashion Police star’s unusual ring holds particular sentimental value, because it was designed to look like one of her Black Sabbath rocker father Ozzy Osbourne’s items of jewellery. She added: ‘I designed it to look like an earring that my father wore. I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say, “I want a ring like that”. Now I have one!’ The couple met at the 2011 wedding of supermodel Kate Moss and rocker Jamie Hince – who makes up The Kills with Matthew’s sister Alison – and admit they knew their relationship would go the distance from the word go.
Matthew told Hello!: ‘I knew she was The One pretty early on.’ Kelly also praised her fiance for making the ‘biggest sacrifice’ when he moved from New York to Los Angeles to be with her. She explained: ‘Matthew made the biggest sacrifice anyone’s ever made for me, to move away from everything that he knew to be with me in LA. ‘Long-distance relationships often don’t work out. We’d dated for a year and knew we wanted to be together. Matthew has broken down every one of my walls. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do in front of him.’
The former reality star also opened up about her parents’ temporary split earlier this year after her father Ozzy relapsed into drinking, insisting there was ‘no question’ that X Factor judge Sharon would ever leave him. She added: ‘As if my mother would ever leave my father! They were never getting divorced, they were separated. As Mum said, “You’re drinking again and I’m not going to talk to you,” like any normal person would do.
‘Then Dad got himself together. He’s been under a lot of pressure – the new Black Sabbath album, my brother’s MS… Things can get too much for addicts to handle.’ The couple have been dating for two years, but rumours of an engagement first began to swirl in May. Kelly told Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show at the time: ‘I’m not telling you guys anything. When I have a ring on my finger, then you’ll know I’m engaged. He’s perfect, he’s mesmerising.’
