Jesse Metcalfe: I'm not engaged

Jesse Metcalfe can't believe people won't accept he's not engaged, and reveals the constant speculation adds more pressure to his relationship.

The American actor, who made a name for himself as hunky gardener John Rowland in Desperate Housewives, has been with girlfriend Cara Santana since 2009 and rumours of a wedding first started circulating in 2012.

Despite his constant insistence that he and Cara are not set to walk down the aisle, Jesse says people just won't believe him.

"You know what, I'm not engaged. That's some misinformation," Jesse told the Kyle and Jackie O Breakfast show on KIIS 1065. "I swear to God man, that's some misinformation that has been floating around out there.

"It doesn't matter how many interviews I do and refute it, people just seem to keep printing it."

Despite having to pour water on the rumours once again, Jesse did hint that marriage may not be too far off for the couple.

Cara is also an actress and is used to the speculation that surrounds her high profile relationship, but Jesse reveals that the more people talk to him about it, the more strained he feels.

"That's not to say we won't get engaged and won't get married, it seems to be going in that direction, but not yet. It's crazy because it's not like I don't have enough pressure to get engaged every day," he sighed.

Jesse has had a string of high profile relationships, and dated British popstar Nadine Coyle for two-years before meeting Cara.

On the subject of his romance Jesse couldn't help but gush about the love of his life and credits her with helping him turn around the playboy image he formally had in the media.

"She's great, she's amazing, she handles it like it doesn't even faze her - she's a pro. She is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. She has opened my life up in so many ways," he smiled.

"Being with her has helped me shed that image I had in the past - that player image. She's really helped me grow."
