Amy Winehouse: Singer, Reg Traviss Were Planning to Wed Next Year

Weeks before her death, Amy Winehouse and boyfriend Reg Traviss were secretly engaged and planning to wed next year, a British newspaper recently reported.

According to The Sun, the British singer and Traviss had been dating for two years and had recently decided to get engaged.

The 27-year-old singer, who had been battling alcohol and drug abuse for years, said yes without a moment's hesitation when Traviss, 35, popped the question with a diamond engagement ring.

"Reg asked Amy and of course she said 'Yes'. She loved him," an unidentified source told The Sun.

"She wanted nothing more than to be his wife and to start a family with him," the source added.

Winehouse was hoping marriage would help tame her wild lifestyle. She had also entered a rehab facility for a week in June in hopes of kicking her drug and alcohol habits.

Traviss, a movie director, had reportedly given Winehouse the diamond ring after the couple had a heart-to-heart discussion about their future together.

The pair decided last month to get married and have the ceremony next year, but Winehouse's untimely death put an end to those dreams.

Traviss, who called Winehouse his "darling," thanked fans last week for showing the dead singer so much love.

"I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love," Traviss said. "I have lost my darling who I loved very much."

A devastated Traviss has been spending much of his time in grieving with Winehouse's family.

Mitch Winehouse, Amy's father, had taken a strong liking to Traviss and was delighted that his daughter had found love with the film director.

He reportedly said during Winehouse's funeral last week that Traviss had been helping his daughter deal with her problems.

"Amy was looking forward to their future together," Mitch said, according to The Sun. "She was the happiest she has been for years."

Winehouse and Traviss had started dating two months after the British singer divorced husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

The Grammy-winning chanteuse was found dead by a body guard in her London home on June 23.

Winehouse's family buried her quietly in a private ceremony for relatives and close friends on July 26.

An autopsy failed to reveal any clues as to what may have killed the singer, and toxicology test results will not be known for weeks.
