Heart-throb Stephen is last to join hubby-zone.

million girls’ hearts by marrying a stunning pop
Stephen Gately is the only member of the five-strong
group who hasn’t tied the knot.
Now pop insiders say he is set to announce his
engagement to Dublin singing sensation Kerri-Ann, 20.

PS Oh, and GO TO THE GIG!!!!
