Is Jamie Laing Dating Anyone?
Laing has been living in London with his partner, Sophie Habboo, since April 2019. On December 18, 2021, Laing and Habboo confirmed their engagement on Instagram.
He spent many hours putting together a romantic proposal scene that included hundreds of candles and white petals.
“I went there around 1 o’clock in the afternoon, in the midst of the day.” I got balloons, candles, flowers, and everything else.
“And she was like, ‘Oh, I’m stopped in traffic,'” says the narrator. ‘Oh my god,’ I exclaimed. I had lit so many candles that the place was sweltering!
“So I turn on the air conditioner, and the balloons are all over the place because the air conditioner blows them about, and I’m like, ‘Oh god, this is death.'”
Jamie says Sophie soon realized he was about to propose when she entered the hotel room.
“There is nothing quite like getting down on one knee and saying those words, ‘Will you marry me?’ to all of you listening right now. I was freaking out because it felt like something out of a movie.”
In December, the former Strictly Come Dancing star announced his engagement with a video on Instagram that showed him counting down while Sophie warmly wrapped her arms around his neck.
The film then turns to a close-up of Sophie’s hat, which was imprinted with the words ‘Mrs. Laing-to-be,’ before panning out to reveal her overcome with emotion. The caption stated, “I couldn’t think of anything better than spending the rest of my life with you @habboosophie.”
Sophie then proudly displayed her stunning engagement ring, which features a huge oval diamond and a pave band.
Jamie Laing has a net worth of $10 million (£7.6 million) as of 2022.
Aside from her broadcast popularity, Laing is also a successful podcast host for Apple’s Private Parts and BBC Radio 1’s 6 Degrees from Jamie and Spencer.
He has appeared in Hollyoaks, Murder In Successville, and Drunk History, among other shows.
Laing has also established himself as a successful entrepreneur, having founded Candy Kittens, a popular confectionary business, in 2012.
“By mixing fashion with confectionary, we strive to disrupt the old conventions of the market, striving as we do to make sweets cool,” he stated on his LinkedIn page about his work as a founder.
“We’ve been working on our own line of gummy candy for two years, and we’re thrilled to have launched it exclusively with Selfridges across the country.” We think we’re delivering something new and exciting to your shelves. “Sugar has never been used more effectively!”
