EASTENDERS star Lorraine Stanley has revealed the exact moment that she proposed to her long-term boyfriend.
The acting star is famed for her ups and downs as Karen Taylor on the BBC soap opera but her own personal life seems to be on the rise.
Lorraine confirmed that she had gotten engaged to her partner of nine years Mark Perez and has now shown fans the exact moment the proposal took place.
She confirmed the special moment took place on Mark’s birthday last month.
A shirtless Mark appeared to be relaxing on a sun lounger at their home when Lorraine popped the question.
In a caption, she wrote: “Yep, I proposed to him on his birthday 25/6/23… and I know it’s not a leap year, and I didn’t plan it, it was the most impulsive thing I’ve done to date, but it felt like the perfect moment.”
The actress, 47, took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of her with Mark to share the happy news before going into detail about the precious moment.
She could be seen beaming at Mark as she posed with her arm around him.
The star was dressed for the moment in a white dress with a sparkly tiara.
Lorraine simply captioned her photo: “Love you baby #Engaged.” She added a series of emojis including a love heart and an engagement ring.
She and Mark have been together for nine years and last year she shared photos of them celebrating their eighth anniversary.
Lorraine regularly leaves fans speechless when looking worlds away from gobby Walford resident Karen in real life.
