Daniel Radcliffe engaged?

Daniel Radcliffe has reportedly proposed to his girlfriend Erin Darke.

The Harry Potter star has done his best to keep his love life out of the headlines over the years, making a success of it as it was recently confirmed he has been dating Erin Darke for around two years.

The pair are said to be extremely happy together, with a new report suggesting the 24-year-old actor has already popped the question.

"They’re trying to keep it low-key, because he’s very private," an insider told US magazine Star. "But they’re both bursting with excitement. It’s the happiest we’ve seen him in years."

It's claimed the happy couple haven't made an official announcement yet because they are yet to settle on engagement ring. According to the publication, the plan is for Daniel and Erin to travel to Paris where they hope to find a truly unique band.

Although they don't have a ring yet, preparations are already said to be underway. The couple hope to exchange vows next year and want an outdoor ceremony at Lake Michigan, near where the bride-to-be's family live.

A guest list is also already taking shape, with Daniel's Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint top of it. Emma is apparently good friends with Erin and thinks she is the perfect match for her pal, while Rupert is being tapped as best man material.

News of Daniel's reported engagement will come as little surprise to his fans, as the star has gushed about how much he values the institution of marriage in the past.

"Yes, absolutely," he told Parade magazine when asked if he will ever tie the knot. "When growing up, I thought of marriage as being very official, drawing up a contract. It seemed slightly clinical to me. But then you meet somebody that you really love and you think, 'Actually, I wouldn’t mind standing up in front of my friends and family and telling them how much I love you and that I want to be with you forever.'"
