Jess Hayes details romantic engagement with private jet: I thought it was a joke!

Following the exciting news of her engagement to new man Zeb, Love Island star Jessica Hayes has dosed out the details on his romantic Ibiza proposal, complete with sunset and private jet.

Catching up with OK! this week to exclusive announce her news, Jess, 29, beams as she flashes her new diamond ring, having asked Zeb, "Are you joking?" when he popped the question.

“We’d only been together for a year so I wasn’t expecting it. It was a massive surprise!"

Jess reveals how her property developer boyfriend Zeb, 37, got down on one knee back in October as the pair watched the sunset at Es Vedrà in Ibiza during a surprise trip to the Balearic island.

“We went there on a private jet which was just crazy!” she continues. “I asked him to get some videos of me for Instagram so I was just there posing away on the edge of a cliff, and then I turned around and he got down on one knee!

"I was like, “Oh my God, are you joking? Are you pranking me? Is this a real ring?’

“I didn’t get emotional at all and then about three days later I started crying when it sank in.”

Jess, who moved in with Zeb in September, was bowled over when it was “love at first sight” with him, after they met at the most unexpected time, less than a year after the star tragically lost her son Teddy after suffering a miscarriage at 19 weeks.

“I’d had a really tough year and when I look back I was at breaking point and struggling so bad with everything,” she tells us. “I was really at rock bottom and I wasn’t ready to meet someone as I was healing from what had happened.

"Then Zeb just came along and really saved me in so many ways. As soon as I saw him I was obsessed and we were just inseparable from then on. I just knew he was for me.

"When things are going wrong, it’s hard to pick yourself up and picture anything else, but I 100% believe that even the bad things you go through in life are things falling apart so better things can come together.

"I wouldn’t have expected everything to be so good now and I’m so happy. When you’re in something you don’t always realise how bad and toxic things are until you’re in a normal, happy relationship.”

Jess' son Presley, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Dan Lawry – was at home with his dad when Zeb popped the big question, Jess telling OK! he is a bit too young to fully understand Mummy is getting married.

“I said, ‘Do you like Mummy’s ring?’ And he was like, ‘Oh wow, it’s so pretty,’ but he doesn’t understand,” she says. “But I can’t wait to see him all dressed up in a little suit. I guess he’ll be a pageboy or maybe he could bring the rings down?

"But he’d probably have a strop on the floor and lose them!” she laughs.

Fiancé Zeb is also dad to an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship and Jess says she and Presley share a special bond, as does Zeb with Presley.

“They’ve got a lovely relationship and he’s so good with him,” says Jess. “It’s so nice and he has got a lot of patience with Presley as he’s hard work.”

She adds of Zeb’s daughter: “Presley and her fight like brother and sister and they’ve taken on that brother/sister relationship so quick. Presley absolutely loves her to bits and it’s really sweet.”
