Australian actress/singer Sophie Monk is engaged to marry her businessman boyfriend.
The 31 year old’s longtime pal Jimmy Esebag, who is 20 years her senior, proposed during a recent night out at her favourite Los Angeles restaurant.

Monk announced the news on Australian radio station 2Day FM, where she is currently co-hosting the breakfast show, on Tuesday, describing Esebag as her “soul partner” and revealing, “I got engaged, and I kept it quiet so no one’s heard much about him. He’s a keeper. It feels right – I think you know when you know… I’m marrying a male version of myself, which is dangerous but good.”

Monk was previously engaged to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, who went on to date Paris Hilton.
