Michael Lohan and Kate Major are engaged and tell RadarOnline.com exclusively they will marry by the end of the year.
"Yes, we're engaged," a thrilled Kate told RadarOnline.com. "Michael and I have been talking about it over the last two weeks but we didn’t want to say anything about it because he wanted to ask my father’s permission.
"So we flew to Florida and my father gave us his blessing. I’m very traditional and my father and I are very close and I’ve always felt that whoever I married, he’d have to get my dad’s permission.”
While she wouldn’t reveal specific details about the proposal, Kate said: “I was caught very off guard and I was very surprised.”
Kate is 27 and Michael is 49.
The couple said they plan to wed at the end of the year at Oheaka Castle in New York. Kate’s best friends from college and high school and a family member will be her bridesmaids.
Michael, sounding almost giddy, told RadarOnline.com, “With all the things I’ve been through this
year with Lindsay and my past relationships and my heart attacks, Kate has always been there for me and has never given me any reason whatsoever to not trust her. And I know I will feel that way for the rest of my life.”
Kate agrees, adding, “I’ve known Michael for over four years. He’s been a rock to me and I can’t imagine my life without him.”
