Oprah Winfrey has agreed at last to make her relationship with long-time partner Stedman Graham official. She's shocked even her closest friends by confiding she plans to tie the knot with Stedman after accepting his proposal on a recent holiday in Hawaii.
The couple have been together for two decades, and it's 14 years since Stedman first proposed but now Oprah says she's finally ready to say "I do".
"They're the magic words we've all waited so long to hear," reveals an insider from the set of Oprah's hit show. "She's always full of surprises, but this takes the cake."
And no-one was more shocked than Stedman. Oprah, beaten down by months of scandal, had turned to him for support. So he whisked her off to their house in Hawaii for some time out and surprised her by getting down on bended knee once again.
"He's proposed many times over the years and she even agreed to do it once many years ago, but the wedding was postponed a few times and then it just never happened," reveals the source. "But Oprah swears that this time it will be different."
