Henry Cavill: Engaged to Ellen Whitaker!
Henry Cavill and his girlfriend, British athlete Ellen Whitaker, are engaged, JustJared.com can confirm.
The 27-year-old Brit actor, who will star as Superman in a 2012 reboot of the superhero story, asked for Ellen’s father’s permission before popping the question recently.
“The couple is extremely happy,” a rep for Henry told Just Jared.
FYI: Ellen is a successful show jumping rider and has taken home a bronze medal in the 2007 European Championships as part of the British equestrian team.
Congratulations to Henry and Ellen!! http://justjared.buzznet.com/2011/05/04/henry-cavill-engaged/
