Kerry is mum to Molly, 18, and Lily-Sue, 17, with ex-husband Brian McFadden, as well as Heidi, 13, and Maxwell, 12, from her marriage to Mark Croft.

She also shares daughter Dylan-Jorge, six, with her late ex husband George Kay.

A source close to the couple told OK! online said: “Ryan is really close to all of Kerry’s kids so he made sure he involved them before asking for Kerry’s hand in marriage.

“Heidi and DJ helped Ryan pick out the ring while Molly and Lilly-Sue both loved it once he showed it to them.”

Meanwhile our source revealed the ring is very impressive as it is “a massive two carat diamond ring”.

With the blessing of Kerry’s five children, Ryan chose to propose to the former Atomic Kitten star while they were on holiday in Spain.

Our insider continued: “They were all together celebrating Kerry’s 40th birthday early and Ryan popped the question outside on their villa’s balcony.

“Kerry couldn’t believe it and for once was genuinely speechless when Ryan asked her.

“He had a massive grin on his face and just waited for Kerry to say yes – but she took a while because she was so shocked.”

Ryan and Kerry have been dating for around two years and Kerry recently gushed over how he is with her children as she planned to spoil him on Father’s Day.

Writing in her new magazine column, Kerry revealed: “When I go off to work he looks after the kids so he’s a real father figure in their lives. We’re going to shower him with presents!”
