Myleene Klass has shared a video of her family being told she is engaged to Simon Motson.
The musician and presenter said her family feel “blessed and united” and will “try every day to live our happily ever after”.
I was asked by @tiktok to give music lessons, life lessons, show mama school, #learnontiktok, but this lesson is probably the biggest of all, so I’ve posted here in case you don’t have tiktok. I met Sim 5 years ago. My children were 4 and 7, like his. We had been through pretty much identical scenarios. What we didn’t know was that we would go on to blend/mend our families and have our own baby, our ‘glue’. Sim gave me a promise ring when he proposed so we could design our engagement ring together…it was this gold ring that Hero spotted. We were having dinner and Sim quickly put his phone on record to catch them hearing the news. That’s why it’s a bit of a wonky shot 😂, but it also our absolute truth. He captured it perfectly. To all you blended, steps, patchwork, bonus and insta families. It’s not easy. Not everyone around you will understand or accept it. But the only people who really need to know and feel that love are those at your table, under your roof( Baby was in bed!). It takes patience, trust, respect, more patience, loads and loads of laundry 😂 but ultimately, it takes love xxx I post this as it would have been the hope that I needed once upon a time. It would also have been the belief that true love is out there and doesn’t always come in the most conventional of shapes or forms like the story books used to say. One thing is for sure, together, as family, we feel blessed and united and we will try every day to live our happily ever after x
