Lara Dutta-Mahesh Bhupathi are engaged

It's official - Lara Dutta and tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi are engaged. The news was confirmed by Lara today (September 19) who tweeted a smiley face before retweeting what Mahesh had posted on his Twitter page - "So DuttaLara and me got engaged in NY last week. Its official now.."

While Lara had tweeted about her New York trip, there'd been nothing to show that an engagement was on the cards, though the couple have been seeing each other for a while now.

Lara had written earlier this week, "Catching up with friends and visiting my old neighbourhood in NYC! The cup cakes at Magnolia r still the best by far! I love this city!! Finished a 7am boot camp class in NYC! Came crawling out of it! Thought I was going 2 pass out, but survived!! Cupcake as reward! ;-)"

News that Lara was involved with the then married Mahesh broke in 2009. Neither of them spoke about the rumours though Mahesh filed for divorce from former model Shveta Jaishankar.

Then on February 27 this year, Lara and Mahesh made their first official appearance as a couple at the Filmfare Awards in Mumbai.

Later, Mahesh moved from Bangalore to Mumbai, rented a place very close to Lara's house in the Bandra suburb, and she got the place ready for him to move in. She was the one who decided on the interiors of the house, and also organised getting essential electronic equipment fixed there.

Later they also attended the IIFA awards in Sri Lanka in June together.

Around this time, Mahesh's ex-wife Shveta claimed in an interview to a magazine in India that he cheated on her with Lara while they were married. And she's also said it was not the first time that Mahesh had strayed. Shvetha added that if Mahesh could do what he did to her, he could do the same with Lara in the future.
