The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran Is Engaged… Even Though She Said ‘No’ at First
The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran is engaged to his longtime love, shoe designer Nareesha McCaffrey.
The couple has been dating for six years. Kaneswaran put a lot of thought into the proposal and didn't even tip off his bandmates about his plans in order to avoid any spilling of the beans. However, the catch is McCaffrey initially said "no" when he first popped the question.
Here's what happened.
The singer said that "it was like a military operation to plan the proposal. I couldn’t even tell the other boys in the band in case they blew the surprise."
Kaneswaran was looking for the right time to pop the question. He continued, "I’d bought the ring months before. I’d been trying to figure out the right time. I love her, I love every bit of her."
Kaneswaran found out that McCaffrey was planning a surprise birthday bash for him. That's when when he flipped the script and turned it into a surprise engagement party. "I said to her, ‘I wanted a present I would always remember this year by – for you to be my wife,'" Kaneswaran said.
Aw, how romantic!
When he presented her with the three-carat diamond that he designed, she was so overwhelmed that she said "no." She obviously changed her mind.
"I’m still in shock," McCaffrey said. "I don’t like surprises and he really surprised me, but I was so happy. I can’t wait to start planning the wedding."
We are glad it all worked out. Congrats to Siva and Nareesha.
