And just weeks before getting down on one knee, Alex hinted that he would be proposing to his lady.

When asked if he’d planned a proposal, the 24 year old told new! magazine: “I’m not going to say anything because she’s right here.”

To which Olivia responded: “It’s on the cards, but who knows when.”

And the blonde bombshell admitted that she never used to believe in marriage, but that her beau had somewhat changed her mind.

She confessed: “Anything he does makes me cry! I’ve never really thought about it, because I’ve never been one to believe in [marriage] because my parents split up.

“Anything would be my perfect thing, as long as it happens.”
