Leona Lewis knows: It gets "Better in Time." The British pop star just confirmed her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Dennis Jauch.
The musician, 33, revealed to People that she is, in fact, engaged to be married. “It’s amazing that we were brought together from different sides of the world through both of our passions, music and dance, whilst on tour in the U.K. eight years ago,” Lewis said of her fiancé, whom she met in 2010.
“We are both quite private people, but we wanted to share our happy news with everyone that has supported us and watched our relationship blossom over the years,” she added. “We are so thrilled to be on this new adventure together and it is a beautiful feeling to share that love with you all.”
Lewis originally teased the news on social media in early August when she posted a photo to her Instagram Story that showcased a diamond ring on her left hand. Lewis shared a few other shots of herself wearing the ring while on vacation in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with Jauch, including a Boomerang of herself blowing kisses to the camera.
Lewis and Jauch celebrated their anniversary last week and after nearly a decade together, it's clear the two are still very much in love. "It's been the most beautiful 8 years of my life with this incredible human being. Here's to many more beautiful memories," Jauch wrote in an Instagram caption, alongside a collage of photos of the couple throughout the years.
The two first met in 2010, when Jauch was a backup dancer for Lewis during one of her tours. Since they started dating, the two have chosen to keep their relationship private, only attending red carpet events on certain occasions—such as Elton John's Oscars viewing party in 2017.
Three years ago, Lewis told The Telegraph how she and Jauch keep their relationship strong, even when she is away on tour. "We're together, but because we both travel so much, we have to make a huge effort to see one another. If we are within an hour of each other, one of us will jump on a plane to see the other. I think the most unexpected meeting place was in Romania."
Maybe these two will travel once more for a destination wedding!
