Lewis Hamilton will reportedly propose to Nicole Scherzinger before the end of the year.
Lewis Hamilton is apparently ready to put his career second.
The Formula One driver has been dating singer Nicole Scherzinger on and off since 2007, but they are currently very much together.
At his recent win at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Nicole was on hand to congratulate her man. And now he’s achieved so much, it’s thought the 29-year-old might finally be ready to ask his 36-year-old girlfriend for her hand in marriage.
“Throughout their relationship, Lewis has put his career first, and Nicole has been very patient. But now he’s achieved his F1 dreams, he feels they can focus on their future together,” an insider opened up to British magazine Star.
“He’s planning to get down on one knee before the year is up.”
It’s thought the pair’s tumultuous past was down to Nicole wanting to be married with kids, while Lewis was still preoccupied with racing. But now he could be coming round to her way of thinking.
“We wouldn’t be surprised by a Christmas or New Year proposal,” the insider continued.
“Nicole would love to have children and Lewis knows that. It’s definitely the next step after they marry.”
Following their public display of affection in Abu Dhabi, Lewis spoke in gushing terms about Nicole and the “depth” of their relationship. But he remained unsure about the prospect of kids.
“It’s not something we’re thinking about currently," he acknowledged to British newspaper The Sun. “She’s about to start Cats [West End musical in London, UK] and I’m just enjoying the emotion and experience of winning this championship but that’s something that will happen naturally.
“The travelling thing is definitely hard. I wouldn’t want to take my kid out of school, for example, every race. How [do] you juggle that?
“When I have kids I want to be there for them and enjoy that with them.”
