We haven’t seen much of the Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx since his breakup with Kat Von D of LA Ink but the rocker has moved on and found happiness. Nikki Sixx and girlfriend of two years, model Courtney Bingham are officially engaged. Take the leap for more details.
According to The Huffington Post, Nikki, 53, and Courtney, 27, took a trip to St. Barths last weekend where he proposed and she accepted. And she got some major bling, a 6-carat diamond ring to be exact!
Courtney was so excited; she took to Twitter to share the news. “I’m so excited to share with you that @NikkiSixx and I are engaged!!!!!!!!” Then she added, “Thank you for all the kind wishes!!! xoxo.”
Nikki was equally excited that the much younger Courtney had accepted his proposal. “We would like to thank everybody who has been tweeting and posting online congratulations,” he said in a post on Facebook. “Both of us and our families are beyond happy.”
This isn’t Nikki’s first rodeo! He’s been married twice before. He was first married to Playboy Playmate, Brandi Brandt. Their marriage lasted from May 1989 to November 1996 and during that time; they had three children. Wife number two was also a Playboy Playmate, Donna D’Errico. Nikki and Donna were married from December 1996 to June 2007 and had one child together. Since their divorce, he has dated other high-profile women such as Denise Richards and Kat Von D. But all that’s over now! The rocker has once again found love and he’s ready to seal the deal and settle down.
