The Gladiator actor, 53, let slip the secret while discussing his surprisingly close bond with the British singer on Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa radio program on Friday.
“We became friends through people we know and he was on tour and came to stay,” says Russell. “We just became friendly and he has since come back with his fiancée for more time and stuff.” Notice the use of fiancée? Secret engagement? We think yes!
Ed, 26, and hockey star Cherry, 25, have been dating since early 2015 and now it seems like a wedding might be on the cards for these two. Ed is keeping tight-lipped about the comment, but since he and Rusty are good mates, it is possible Ed confided in him about the big news. We sure hope so!
