Kylie Minogue Is Engaged to British Actor Joshua Sasse, and His Magnificent Beard

Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue has fans spinning around, after announcing her engagement to British actor Joshua Sasse in the most adorably understated way. After six months of going steady, Kyles and her superbly bearded boyfy announced their plans to tie the knot by placing a very tradish notice in the UK’s Daily Telegraph:

Covering the pair’s engagement, the Telegraph was quick to point out the almost two-decade age gap between the 47-year-old popstar and her 28-year-old beau, describing Kylie as “[a] forty-something Australian pop princess with a string of celebrity exes”, including Neighbours co-star Jason Donovan and deceased INXS legend Michael Hutchence.

But Kyles has shrugged off the skepticism, telling an Aussie radio station, “I think the general consensus is, we kind of look right together”.

“So even though on paper it might not look right, it just is right. He is an absolutely brilliant, brilliant guy,” she gushed. “And even if I try and act cool and natural, it’s written all over my face that I am very happy.”

The pair reportedly met on the set of Josh’s musical comedy Gallavant last year, and prior to their engagement, Kylie told BBC Radio’s Desert Island Discs that she was even considering starting a family.

So those of you who are secretly obsessed with combing the tabloids for signs of celebrity baby bumps, prepare to go on patrol. You know who you are.

Congrats, Kylie and Joshua! Six months may seem like a whirlwind courtship to some, but it’s really quite a sensible amount of time when you’re dealing with love at first sight.
