Tennis ace Boris Becker has asked his former girlfriend LILLY KERSSENBERG to marry him - four months after the end of his engagement to another woman.
The German sports star's three-month engagement to Alessandra Meyer-Woelden ended in November (08), after she broke off the relationship via text message.
But the 41-year-athlete insists he has moved on, announcing plans to marry Dutch model Kerssenberg, 30, during a recent guest appearance on German TV show Wetten, dass...
Becker says, "We've been together for nearly four years and had our ups and downs... Last summer I lost my way, but she took me back again."
The couple, who previously split in 2007, will marry in the ski resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland on 12 June (09).
And in an ironic twist, Kerssenberg revealed that the athlete's ex-wife, Barbara Becker, and her fiance, Arne Quinze, are planning their nuptials in sync with their own.
But she insists Becker's first wife, with whom he shares two children, is happy for the new couple.
Kerssenberg adds, "They're getting married on the same day!"
