Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson 'ready to announce engagement anytime soon'

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin have been trying to keep their relationship secret for the most part, however, according to sources, the couple may be planning to get serious.

They have been together for a year already, and today, a source told US Weekly "They’ll be engaged soon.  Chris is head over heels.  (He likes the fact that) ...she doesn’t thrive on the spotlight and is very understated."

It was reported that Chris had been reluctant to take things to the next level because he didn't want to upset his ex Gwyneth Paltrow - and is said to have been waiting until she tied the knot to Brad Falchuck.  Paltrow married Falchuck three months back.

Another reason Martin wanted to wait a while to make things public, is that he doesn't want to move too quickly for the sake of the kids he has to Paltrow.

"He wanted to make sure the kids didn’t have too much change all at once," said the source.

Martin and Johnson were rumoured to be dating as far back as October 2017.

The couple have been notoriously private about their relationship, and waited a whole entire year before admitting that they were dating.

When asked about the relationship recently, Johnson simply said "I'm not going to talk about it. But we are happy."
