Sid Owen has revealed he and girlfriend Victoria Shores are engaged and expecting their first child together in a new shoot exclusively for OK!.
And as he discussed wedding plans with us, the former EastEnders star spilled the beans on another big day that he was a huge part of – Adele and Simon Konecki's nuptials back in 2016.
The actor is a longtime friend of Simon's and revealed to us that he was best man at the now-divorced couple's nuptials.
Explaining that Simon will be returning the favour, the 49-year-old told OK!: "Simon is going to be my best man.
"I was Simon’s best man at their wedding,: he continued. "And then I’ve got another friend who will also be best man, so I’ll have two."
And despite the fact his best friend is no longer with the singer, Sid explained that the Oscar winner will still be on the guest list for his big day.
"Well she’s not with my best friend Simon [Konecki] any more but, of course, out of respect she will be invited."
Sid and Victoria reconnected last year after meeting over 20 years before at Ronnie Wood's house.
While they dated briefly back in the '90s, Victoria went on to marry another man and have two children.
Sid told us: "I’m so glad we’re back together now because we would never have lasted back then. I was on EastEnders and it was all a bit crazy."
Speaking of their engagement, the Ricky Butcher actor explained: "I first floated the idea a couple of months after we got back together.
"I've never been married and it just felt right. We were at Eastwell Manor in Kent when I finally plucked up the courage to do it.
"I booked the bridal suite, champagne and flowers. It was a beautiful day. I did get down on one knee."
Waitress Victoria added: "There were a few tears. It was really special."
Despite it being only weeks since the couple got engaged, they are already thinking ahead to the big day and are planning to invite a host of Ricky's former EastEnders co-stars.
Sid and Victoria also revealed the happy news they are expecting their first child together.
