MELBOURNE: Malaysian-born Guy Sebastian, the inaugural Australian Idol, is set to marry after proposing to long-time girlfriend Jules Egan.
Sebastian, 26, was spending time with Egan over Christmas when he decided to pop the question, according to New Idea magazine.
According to the report, Sebastian, a devout Christian, dropped to one knee following a beachside walk and produced a white-gold ring featuring 140 diamonds.
Sebastian, who was born in Klang, Selangor, met 28-year-old Egan at an Assemblies of God church in Adelaide 13 years ago. They have been together for eight years.
Sebastian's MySpace webpage was flooded with messages of congratulations by fans and friends. - Bernama
