Nicole Scherzinger may or may not be engaged to race car champion Lewis Hamilton



rsz_tbd-nicolescherzinger071911.jpgWhile J.Lo and Marc are splitting up, Nicole Scherzinger is celebrating her hosting duties on The X Factor by marrying former British Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton. Well, they've been together for four years, so he took that lap kinda slowly.

Nicole's father, Alfonso Valiente, revealed that the 26-year-old racer proposed to his daughter, calling him "my future son-in-law" in an interview. "You know about the proposal? Yes they are engaged," he told the Daily Mail. "My future son-in-law is a really nice guy, really down-to-earth. My family all like him. The good spirit is there. ... He is sincere and he and my daughter seem genuinely happy together. Lewis is a really good guy."

Hamilton denied later he was engaged to the 31-year-old, but you know how dads are. Considering the kind of folks the former Pussycat Dolls member could be hanging around with, pops is likely thrilled she's with a millionaire racing champ instead of an unemployed cokehead who was this close to making it big in the industry.
