It looks like Nicole Scherzinger’s heart is racing!¬† Rumors started swirling that the couple was engaged after Nicole’s father spoke to the UK’s Mail Sunday. According to RadarOnline, Scherzinger’s father, Alfonso, said that Hamilton is “a really nice guy, real-down-to-earth. My family all like him. The good spirit is there,” which got misinterpreted as Alfonso announcing his daughters engagement but the rumor is false. The couple has been together for 4 years. Scherzinger, a former Pussycat Doll, will now be sitting alongside Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid on the judging panel for The X Factor premiering this September on FOX.

What do you do if your parents don’t like the person you want to marry?

Cupid’s Advice:

Getting married is one of the most important moments in your life, but how do you handle this joyous occasion when your parents don’t like the person you want to marry? Cupid has some tips:

1. Show them your happy: As the old saying goes, your parents always want what is best for you, and they want you to be happy. Show them that you’re truly happy with your beau and they will be more willing to support your decision.

2. Show them what you like: Show your parents what you like about your significant other. Maybe they don’t see what you see, but open their eyes to the great things about your honey.

3. Let it go: If you love your significant other and you’re happy, then nothing else should matter. Hopefully your parents will warm up to him, but it’s really what you think and feel that counts, not what your parents think.
