    Wedding bells are about to ring again for local radio DJ Jamie Yeo, who accepted her boyfriend’s proposal on Apr 12 after an eight-month romance.

    The Gold 90.5FM DJ announced the proposal yesterday afternoon in an Instagram post that carried only one word: “Yes.”

    This is the third time that Jamie, 39, is tying the knot.

    She was first married to SPH Radio’s One FM 91.3 DJ Glenn Ong in 2004, before they split in 2009. He also had his third wedding last year – to Class 95 FM’s Jean Danker.

    Jamie’s second marriage was in 2010 to British expatriate Thorsten Nolte, with whom she had a daughter, Alysia.

    The couple divorced five years later, citing “deep-seated problems that stemmed from (their) inherent personality differences.”

    Jamie revealed in a February interview that she met her now-fiance Rupert eight months after connecting through dating app Tinder in 2015.

    Little is known about Rupert, other than him being a 38-year-old British expatriate who works at a consultancy firm.

    In another interview with 8 Days magazine last month, Jamie admitted that she was “looking forward to a future with Rupert.”

    She said Rupert has been helping her raise daughter Alysia, whom Jamie has sole custody of. Previously, she was looking after Alysia by herself.

    Describing him as dedicated, sweet, quiet and sensitive, Jamie added that she hopes Alysia will eventually come to see Rupert as a father figure, even though he is not her biological father.
