Former Liverpool footballer Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock is finally engaged to ex-Page Three and Playboy model Leah Newman.
The 41-year-old I’m A Celebrity star has been in a relationship with the model since 2006. The couple live in Hastings, East Sussex, with their daughter, and are expecting their second baby later this year.
Confirming the engagement, Leah told The Sun: “I’m so happy to finally be engaged. Razor and I care a lot for each other.
“We are expecting our second child in August so it just feels so right and like we are becoming a proper family. He could have proposed to me in a chip shop and I would have said yes.
“He has changed a lot over the past few years and we are getting on great. I love him a lot and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him as man and wife.”
In September 2007, the pair appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap, together with Pete Burns and his partner Michael Simpson.
