Solomon, 42, is the Creative Director of British GQ magazine while Kylie, 52, is currently promoting her album Disco, which was released in November 2020.

The news was inadvertently confirmed by friend of the couple UK singer and actress Billie Piper, who referred to Paul as Kylie’s ‘fiance’ in an interview with Elle Magazine.

‘She’s very nice, I’m thrilled they’re engaged,” she told the online publication.

When it came to details of how he popped the question, any forecasted dates or plans however, she remained tight-lipped.

‘It’s very exciting. But, I’m sorry, I cannot tell you any more because I’ve been told not to,” she told them.

“I respect my son and I respect Kylie too much to say any more.”

Neither Kylie nor Paul has commented on the rumours.

The news sheds some light on Kylie’s recent return home to Melbourne reportedly with Paul in tow, in January.

At the time her promoter said she was planning to stay ‘or a while’ and was ecstatic to see her family, and with this kind of news to share its little wonder!

The marriage will be the first for the Locomotion singer, who has had a string of long-term relationships but not marriages under her belt.

It’s not her first engagement however, Kylie was briefly engaged to younger boyfriend actor Joshua Sasse, 32, in 2016 but they called it off a year later.
