Last summer she declared that after two failed marriages she would never walk down the aisle again.

Katie Price has gone back on her word as she prepares to wed Leandro Penna.

The glamour model will wed her Argentinian toyboy, making him her third husband in the space of seven years.

The Sun published photos of Price, 33, flashing a pink diamond ring on her wedding finger as she and Penna, 26, dined out near her Sussex mansion.

A spokesman for Katie confirmed to MailOnline the couple were engaged.

He said: 'They're engaged. Leandro proposed to Katie while they were away skiing recently - and she said yes.'

And Katie has yet to finalise her divorce from cagefighter Alex Reid and is expecting the decree absolute very soon.

Katie met Alex in 2009 and they were married in February 2010 in Las Vegas before getting formally hitched in the UK, which was filmed as part of her reality TV show, but they split in January 2011.

She was previously married to Peter Andre who she met when she and the pop star took part in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here in 2004 and they were married in September 2005.

They had Junior and Princess but announced in May 2009 that they were separating and they were divorced that September.

Katie met model Leandro in March last year at Sir Elton John's Oscar party and they remained pretty much inseparable, despite their age gap and Leandro unable to speak English.

He followed her to the UK and became close to her family but their romance ran into trouble when it was revealed that Leandro had a three-year-old daughter and was feeling homesick for Argentina.

They split in October last year but have kept in touch and Leandro came back to the UK to spend Christmas with her.

Then, earlier this month, she took to her Twitter page to declare: 'I'm in love with Leandro Penna'.

Days later, he announced that he had sealed their relationship with a ring.

He is believed to have told Argentinian glossy Caras: 'I surprised Katie with a sparkly ring. Our story is no longer just a romance. Now we’re committed.

'We decided to get back together... so I bought a ring and I surprised her with it.

Luckily, she ­accepted and we are now really happy ­together.'

But last July, while appearing on Lee Mack's All Star Cast, she announced: 'I'm never getting married again. It's too expensive to get married and more expensive to divorce. No, I'm definitely not.'

She was also quoted by website Female First as saying: 'I've adopted an Argentinian man. I wouldn't adopt an Argentinian baby at this point but I would have a baby with an Argentinian man when the time is right.
