British actor Henry Cavill is engaged to athlete Ellen Whitaker.
The next “Superman” proposed while vacationing in Los Angeles yesterday.
“I couldn’t believe it when he asked me to marry him,” Whitaker tells The Belfast Telegraph. “I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy.”
Henry called Ellen’s father to ask his permission before getting down on one knee and proposing.
Whitaker is on the British show jumping team and is currently training for the 2012 Olympics.
