Here comes the bride? That's the word on the street for one of MTV News' favorite couples of 2009, Katy Perry and Russell Brand. There are many a gossip website reporting that the pair, who made their relationship public at the VMAs in September, are looking to make it official.
"Russell is searching for a jewelry designer to make up a ring in time for New Year after the pair discussed what they wanted to have," a source told Splash News. "Russell also has the approval of Katy's parents and everyone in the pair's close circle know about the engagement."
The Daily Mirror's source (via Hollyscoop) adds, “Russell knows Katy’s the one for him. He’s never been into a girl like he has with her and they’re besotted. He asked her to marry him last week and she quickly said yes… They don’t know when the wedding will be but they are planning to make it in 2010 if the schedules can work.”
Although there's been no official word about the duo's plans to marry, Russell recently wrote this very telling notevia Twitter: "Tonight I turned off my famous, hedonistic hot-tub, a monumental event. I did it for climate change. In every sense."
Russell also has recently chatted about settling down and how much he loves Katy in interviews. "She's lovely, and I don't want her to read anything about herself," he said in an interview with the Sunday Times in London, adding that whenever he jokes about the situation with reporters, it seems like his words are continually being taken out of context.
Plus, who could forget the time she wore his nickname on her bottom at the MTV European Music Awards. To us, that spells true love!
So, what do you think? Are Katy and Russell going to walk down the aisle anytime soon?
