Hugh Grant has popped the question to Jemima Khan, friends of the couple had said. Despite her denial of their getting back together again after an on-off relationship, Khan and Grant were snapped enjoying a dinner at The Ritz hotel in Paris last month and were seen having lunch together at a fish restaurant on the Embankment in London last weekend.
"Jemima is saying they are just friends and that it was a coincidence they met in Paris, but all the signs are pointing to the relationship being on again," a friend of the couple said. "There could have been a clean break but he has begged Jemima for another chance. He has proposed but Jemima isn't sure whether she wants to enter another marriage."
The friend furthermore went on adding that Grant and Khan "started seeing each other again in April. It was on the understanding that they would give it a proper shot and that if they could make it work, they would marry. Hugh has proposed. But one of the reasons they have not made the announcement is because Jemima's mother, Lady Annabel, has told her daughter not to rush into anything."
Grant began dating socialite and Unicef ambassador Khan in 2004. In February 2007, the actor's publicist confirmed reports that the two had mutually decided to end their relationship. If only reports on their engagement are to be believed, we'll have just to wait and see if this time on they will make it to the altar.
