Congratulations are in order for Pete Doherty who is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Katia de Vidas.

A representative for the former rock and roll bad boy confirmed the news to MailOnline after film editor Katia was seen sporting a dazzling new ring in a recent Instagram post.

The engagement ring was visible in an image shared by the Welsh band Trampolene, in which their frontman Jack Jones enjoys the company of Pete and Katia, who is lovingly playing with his dog.

"Luna & the Puta Madres xXx," read the caption of the image as Katia leans in to kiss the pet pooch.

MailOnline adds that the pair, who have been dating since 2012, have been engaged "for a while".

News of 42 year old Pete's engagement comes just days after he revealed he had been clean of heroin for two and a half years.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, the musician said: "I'm in recovery. I suppose I'm two and a half years clean of heroin which is a big deal for me, and yeah, I'm ticking along writing music, still writing music."

The Babyshambles singer has been happy and healthy since ditching his bad boy lifestyle for a new life in Normandy, France, with Katia.

He has embraced every aspect of laid back French living – reportedly even taking up the popular bowls-style sport Pétanque.

One French local recently said: "Pete is no longer a bad boy. He's relaxing, settling down and loving the good things in life."

And earlier this year, a source told The Sun that he has been happier than ever in lockdown with stunning Katia by his side.

They continued: "They spend lots of time cooking and walking the dog. It's a very genteel lifestyle in comparison to the way he used to live.

"Pete's in a good headspace at the moment, and life is really positive for him.

After getting clean, Pete recently said that his new guilty pleasure is now cheese and snoozing, telling The Sun in a separate report: "I like Comté, Comté on toast. My guilty pleasure is sleeping.

"For years and years, I would stay up for five or six days and then I would sleep for 24 hours, so now I love sleep.

"At the moment, I'm quite clean. I stopped taking heroin and ketamine," he explained.

The rock and roll star found fame in The Libertines in the early noughties and became a tabloid fixture when he began dating Kate Moss in 2005.

Pete is a father to a teenage son, Astile, from a previous relationship with Lisa Moorish, and has a daughter Aisling, who he shares with model Lindi Hingston.
