Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell knows what she wants, what she really, really wants…a lifetime of happiness with the man she loves, yacht tycoon Fabrizio Politi.

The couple’s romance, which began to blossom during a chance encounter at a nightclub in Florence, Italy in December, swiftly led to a proposal during the Christmas season, with the prospective groom presenting a diamond engagement ring valued at £220,000 ($310,000) to his bride-to-be, the Mirror reports.

Keeping their happy news a cherished secret for several weeks, the singer is known to have divulged information about her impending “I do” to fellow music icon George Michale during a lunch at Notting Hill’s E&O restaurant on January 24, 2009, two days prior to her representative’s public announcement of the pair’s betrothal. The pop star/children’s author and her fiance have not decided on a date for their walk down the aisle.
