There were reports over the weekend that Pippa Middleton was secretly engaged to her boyfriend, Nico Jackson. But are the reports true?

Sadly, no.

I suppose it was a dead giveaway when the word “secret” prefaced the engagement since I think Pip would be screaming it from the rooftops. Sources reportedly divulged all to the Sunday People (via the Mirror) with one friend saying, “Pippa loved seeing Kate go down the aisle and now it is her turn for a fairytale wedding. She couldn’t be more sure that Nico is the right man for her. They are such a good fit for each other and their families get on really well. Everyone is so happy for Pippa.”

The paper even claimed to know every last detail, including when Nico proposed (shortly before Wimbledon began), when the couple will formally announce the engagement (after Pippa’s 30th birthday, Sept. 6), and that Pippa is designing a ring and planning a reception at her parents’, Carole and Michael Middleton‘s home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

Alas, all the reports were false. A source told Us Weekly that a wedding isn’t in the cards for Pippa and Nico just yet. The two have only been dating for six months and while they are serious about one another, it’s still fairly new. They did, however, reportedly visit her nephew, Prince George, at Kensington Palace shortly after the baby was born.

Of course, this is merely a denial from a supposed source; it didn’t come from Pippa herself so you never know. I don’t think a wedding is happening yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if an engagement were to happen soon. I just believe there will be nothing secret about it. What do you think? Will Pippa keep things low-key or try to make it a big hoopla?
