She’s come a long way from her shaky start in the first few weeks of this year’s series of the X Factor to become one of the show’s most popular stars and now she has announced her plans to marry her girlfriend, Meri Sopanen, of two years.

Twenty-nine-year-old Saara, revealed her engagement through an interview with OK Magazine and apparently her girlfriend waited for a quiet moment when they were together at home.

It was super low-key.

Last August, on their two-year anniversary, her girlfriend popped the question, whilst the singer was in her PJs after a long and happy day.

Saara joked,

“She just said: ‘Oh, we had a lovely day…’ Then: ‘Will you marry me?'”

Meri was quick to point out,

‘We did have candles! I wanted to do it when she wasn’t wearing make-up – I love her soul.’
