Lara Stone has confirmed reports she is set to wed for the second time.
The model is engaged to 37-year-old property developer David Grievson, who she began dating in 2018 after meeting him on dating app Tinder.
According to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, Stone sparked engagement rumours when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger while recently attending the Gymkhana VIP dinner in London’s upmarket Mayfair district, and her representative has now confirmed the news.
“They are engaged,” her spokesman told the publication, while an unknown friend added, “She is very happy with David. And she loves that he’s not in the public eye like her ex was… She didn’t enjoy that aspect of their relationship.”
The engagement comes almost five years since the 36-year-old split from British comedian and author David Walliams, the father of her six-year-old son Alfie. The Dutch beauty met the Little Britain star in 2009 and they got engaged four months later. They tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony at Claridge’s hotel in London in 2010.
However, the comedian filed for divorce in September 2015, citing unreasonable behaviour, and the marriage was dissolved at a hearing in London just six weeks later.
Reflecting on their split during an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph in April last year, Lara said that while their divorce was “awful”, the former couple are now successfully co-parenting their son.
“Sometimes really different people work together – but maybe not for ever. It’s awful getting divorced,” she explained, adding that Alfie hasn’t been affected by their split.
“It’s now five years and luckily our son was really young. He didn’t really notice anything. It’s only now that he knows that we used to be married,” she shared.
