Cheryl Cole's Boyfriend, Tre Holloway, Seeks Permission To Marry Her

Cheryl Cole is on the verge of getting engaged for the second time, as her boyfriend Tre Holloway has asked for permission to marry her.

The smitten dancer has been planning to pop the question for a while and The Mirror reports that last week he called Cheryl's dad Garry to ask him if he could wed his daughter. And he was delighted when Garry gave his blessing.

But cautious dad Garry almost didn't give the engagement the go ahead, as he is still concerned that Cheryl will get her heart broken again, and recommended that the pair wait a little bit longer before Tre gets down on one knee.

Cole has already been married once before

Tre already has plans for the ring, and wants to design one himself that will include a pearl - Cheryl's birthstone.

A friend of Cheryl told the newspaper: "She's always said that although Ashley's £100,000 ring was the most expensive jewellery she'd ever owned, she'd rather have had a £100 one and a happy marriage."

Cheryl has also been thinking about walking down the aisle again, as the source added: "Tre and her have been discussing marriage for the past couple of months now. They know they want to be together and she's desperate to start a family - especially as she turns 30 this year. Cheryl told Tre over Christmas that she was starting to think about marrying again, something she never thought she'd contemplate after her divorce from Ashley."

Hopefully this will be Cheryl's happy ever after, as her first marriage to footballer Ashley Cole left her humiliated by his adultery.

She has since dated Dancing With The Stars performer Derek Hough.
