‘Life’s too short, have fun’: Vick Hope reveals she’s the ‘luckiest I’ve ever been’ after getting engaged to Calvin Harris after a whirlwind five-month romance
Vick Hope has revealed she’s the “happiest she’s ever been” after Calvin Harris asked the question.
It turned out that the Radio 1 DJ, 32, and superstar artist Calvin, 38, were engaged in May this year after a whirlwind five-month romance.
Though they’ve both been tight-lipped about their relationship, Vick confessed that she’s feeling better than ever after surrounding herself with the “right people.”
‘Life’s too short, have fun’: Vick Hope revealed she’s the ‘happiest I’ve ever been’ after getting engaged to Calvin Harris
The former Strictly Come Dancing star told Waitrose’s Weekend magazine: ‘I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. It sounds so gushing, but I’ve figured out what makes me happy.
“It just takes time – it’s about getting older, surrounding yourself with the right people and the right things… and just trying to have fun. Life is too short.’
Elsewhere in the chat, Vick also expressed regret about changing her name to make it into showbiz.
The half Nigerian star’s full name is Victoria Nwayawu Nwosu-Hope, but was advised to shorten it because people would find it ‘difficult to pronounce or spell’.
Looking back on her decision, Vick admitted, “That’s not good enough — a name from another country shouldn’t be a problem.”

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Vick and Calvin are planning a low-key ceremony for their big day, with an insider telling The Sun: “While it’s a beautiful ring and extremely expensive, the couple isn’t going for a flashy or expensive wedding.
The extravagance of the rock will overshadow how much they will spend on the big day itself, as they want to keep it quiet and simple with only a core of close friends and family in attendance.
“Anyway, money isn’t a real object for Calvin, who has made millions over the past 15 years making hit dance tracks.”
Vick was spotted wearing her diamond engagement ring at the Chelsea Flower Show in May after Calvin popped the question under a tree at his Ibiza farm, Terra Masia.
A source told MailOnline at the time: “Calvin and Vick’s relationship has moved on quickly, but they are in love.
They couldn’t be happier and are already planning their wedding, which will take place in Ibiza, where they bonded during Vick’s secret visits to the White Island.
“After keeping their relationship private, they decided to go to the Chelsea Flower Show. They want everyone to know their happy news now.”
Vick said, “It just takes time – it’s about getting older and surrounding yourself with the right people and the right things… and just trying to have fun. Life is too short’
