Los Angeles: Singer Nicole Scherzinger has got engaged to F1 champion Lewis Hamilton, according to her father.
"You know about the proposal? Yes they are engaged," showbizspy.com quoted Alfonso Valiente as saying.
"My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down-to-earth. My family all like him. The good spirit is there," he added.
Alfonso, 52, says he met Lewis last year after the couple spent a week with him and his family on the Hawaiian island of Oahu and the sportsman left a good impression.
"When he walked into the house for the first time he picked up one of the babies, that went down very well.
"He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy. When they came to visit, we hired them a Jeep because he had never driven one before," he added.
However, a spokesman for the 25-year-old Hamilton refused to confirm their engagement.
