Pop star Delta Goodrem is engaged to be married to Irish singing beau Brian McFadden of Westlife fame, according to reports out of Britain.

News of the World has published the claims, but Goodrem's mother and manager, Lea Goodrem, denies the engagenment has taken place.

McFadden is yet to divorce his wife, Kerry Katona, formerly of all-girl band Atomic Kitten, with whom he has two daughters.
