Former Emmerdale star Lisa Riley announces engagement to "soul mate" boyfriend

Loose Women panelist and former Emmerdale star Lisa Riley has announced that she is engaged to her “soul mate” boyfriend.

She took to Twitter on Monday (May 21) to share the happy news.

“Yes I can now confirm the rumours are true,” said the actress. “I have got engaged…my soul mate and best mate and love of my life Al is the best thing to have ever happen to me….

“we have absolutely NO date set for ANY wedding day, just happy together…zero fuss, just firmed our togetherness.”

The 41-year-old actress had remained quiet about her personal life until confirming last year that she had been in a relationship for three years.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, she said: “Everyone’s so supportive and thankfully recognises it’s private. The reason why it works is that it’s the only thing I’ve got. It’s our own little thing and we’re so happy – it’s been three years now.”

The happy news comes less than a month after she announced that she may not be able to have children, and that she was planning to have IVF.

“There are a lot of reasons why I want to have a baby,” she told the Daily Mail. “Some to do with the fact I’ve saved myself by losing weight, but also that I’m in love for the first time in my life and [Al] would like to have a baby if we can.

“I don’t just think about myself any more. If we were to have a child, that would be wonderful.”
