It's like the lyric in Beauty and the Beast: There may be something there that wasn't there before. That's the first thing we thought when we spotted a conspicuous-looking ring on Ellie Goulding's left ring finger!
Goulding, who has been dating musician Dougie Poynter since last year, got tongues wagging when she made no attempt to hide her bling as she went to the London launch party for Diane von Furstenberg's new coffee-table book, Journey of a Dress last night. The yellow gold-and-diamond sparkler is visible in the photo above, which was taken at the event.
According to OK!, it was only last week that rumors swirled that the smitten duo were going to get engaged sooner rather than later. As a source told LOOK magazine, "They must have talked about it. If Dougie was to ask, I'm almost certain Ellie's answer would be yes. Dougie's seen all of his friends get married and he'd surely love to do the same, for both of them it seems they've found 'the one'."
Goulding deflected any engagement questions, but did tell the magazine that she is exceptionally happy. "Love is beyond everything, beyond the universe," she said.
If the rumors are true, they'll be a musical match made in heaven: Goulding achieved international fame for her hit single Lights and got to perform at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding; Poynter plays in the British band McBusted.
