KATIE Price's toyboy has asked Katie Price's dying mum Amy permission to marry her daughter.
We're told the former glamour model's on-off boyfriend is ready to pop the question after buying a ring and is making secret preparations to get down on one knee.
Since getting together earlier this year, the couple have had a tumultuous few months which has seen the reality TV favourite, 40, and her personal trainer beau, 29, break up and get back together several times.
However, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal that despite their bust-ups the pair could be about to commit to one another once and for all.
Kris met with Katie's 64-year-old mum Amy - who suffers from terminal lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis - on camera, in scenes that are expected to air very soon on Katie Price: My Crazy Life.
Insiders have told us that he wanted to get her personal approval - particularly since she was so unimpressed after meeting him and demanded that he sign a 'boyfriend' agreement so he wouldn't use her daughter for cash.
They said: "Kris asked Amy for Katie's hand in marriage as he knows she's not exactly his number one fan. He's desperate to win her over and prove his love for her daughter and show his love is real."
"He really wants Amy's blessing and prove he can be a good husband and take care of Katie and the kids."
However, insiders tell us that their rendezvous didn't exactly go to plan, with Amy still not happy about his desire to wed Katie.
It comes with little surprise as back in August she was shown meeting Kris for the first time over an awkward lunch and was hesitant to give the romance her blessing so soon after Katie's split from husband Kieran Hayler, 31.
Speaking her mind, Amy said to camera at the time: "I thought 'here we go, another young one, yet again.'
"I hoped Kate would go for an older man this time and not so soon."
Kris revealed in September that he had already purchased an engagement ring for Katie but the pair broke up and she went on to date another toyboy, Alex Adderson.
The insider told us: "Kris bought the ring ages ago and he's now waiting on the perfect moment to propose. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the happy news."
The source added: "The last thing Amy wants is for Katie to get married again.
"She wants Katie to be happy, of course, but the men in her life have been nothing but trouble and she doesn't want her to go through anymore heartbreak - let's face it, they've all ended in complete disaster."
There's still the matter of divorcing ex Kieran too...
Over the weekend the couple were pictured enjoying a romantic break to Glasgow.
But Katie soon hinted that the pair had had another bust-up as she made her way home.
The star shared a photo of a quote to her 1.9 million followers, which read: "Wait for the person who will do anything to be your everything."
Captioning the shot, she wrote: "Being single is the best way" alongside a love heart emoji.
Will they or won't they? Guess we'll have to tune into My Crazy Life to find out!
