The Marsh family are celebrating again as Kym’s son David Cuncliffe popped the question to his girlfriend weeks after his mum’s wedding
Kym Marsh has revealed it’s a ‘magical time’ for her family after her son David Cuncliffe proposed to his girlfriend weeks after her own wedding.
The former soap star, 45, tied the knot with her army major love Scott Ratcliff at Sandhurst last month.
As she basks in newly-married bliss, Kym was given another reason to smile this weekend as her son popped the question to his partner.
Sharing the news on Instagam, Kym wrote: “So…..last night….this happened!!! My wonderful son @cunliffe890 asked his beautiful girlfriend @courtneyleac to marry him….and she said YES!!!!!!”
Kym is mum to David, 26, Emilie, 24, and Polly, 10.
The star posted: “I cannot begin to put into words how ecstatic I am!! To be in their company as a couple is to truly be in the presence of love! Anyone that knows us knows how protective I am of my children and I ALWAYS thought I would not like any of David’s girlfriends hahah!!
“How wrong I was. This girl is an absolute diamond, she’s kind and compassionate, beautiful inside and out and loves my son with everything she has! I couldn’t have wished for anyone better for him and I am super excited to be gaining a daughter!” said Kym.
“Equally Courtney is getting one hell of a guy. I am so so proud of the man that he is, he is a beautiful human and deserves the very best and boy has he got it! Huge congratulations to you both. I can’t wait to give you both a big squeeze when you’re home!!” gushed the mum.
“And….not only was yesterday a special day because of this wonderful news, but it was also @courtneyleac 24th birthday! So a huge happy birthday my daughter in law to be!!!! (Wanted to wait for the news to be out to post so that I could write that!) Hahah. A wonderful time was had all round with a huge huge thanks to @teresacbrown for helping David give Courtney the most romantic time of her life at our fave @canaryriversideplaza and also to my pals @malarestaurant for the best Indian meal they have ever had!!
“Magical and happy times for our family right now,” said Kym as she finished the post.
It comes weeks after Kym and her beau Scott Ratcliff married in front of 150 people at the Royal Memorial Chapel at Sandhurst.
Coronation Street star Alison King was a bridesmaid while Corrie actor Antony Cotton joined the groomsmen in the star-studded celebrations.
Coronation Street stars, Danny Foster from Hear’Say were also in attendance as well as Gethin Jones and Janette Manrara from Strictly and TV presenter Carol Vorderman.
