Cheryl Cole's Mum Puts Her Foot Down Over Engagement

If Cheryl Cole's new fella is considering buying a sparkling ring for the singer to open at Christmas, he should think again - her mum Joan has banned him from popping the question.

The Girls Aloud beauty embarked on a romance with her backing dancer Tre Holloway earlier this year, and has even started to show off their relationship publicly, featuring the American hunk on TV documentary 'Cheryl: Access All Areas' last month.

And things have been going so well, Tre has approached her mother to ask if he can wed her famous daughter.

Cheryl's mum, Joan has put a stop to any engagement plans that Tre may have

However, the fiercely protective matriarch has put a damper on the proposal by insisting it's too soon for the pair to walk down the aisle.

A source tells The Sun: "Tre called her and said he wanted to propose to Cheryl when they are in America with his parents. He wanted to do it on Christmas Day, but Joan refused to give her blessing.

"She's warming to Tre but there's no way she's going to let another man take Cheryl down the aisle so quickly. Tre's got his work cut out if he thinks he can get around Joan so soon."

It has taken Cheryl a whilee to get over her ex-husband Ashley Cole. The pair divorced in 2010 amid allegations he was cheating.

Chezza has recently blasted reports she has snapped up a love nest for her and Tre in L.A.

Following the story in Heat magazine, the feisty pop star tweeted a link to the story, along with the caption: "Off is the direction I would like you to F**k !!!! lies".
