Supermodel Isabeli Fontana has announced her engagement to Rohan Marley.
The former Sports Illustrated and Victoria's Secret beauty has been dating Bob Marley's son, 39, since October last year.
This will be the third wedding for the 28-year-old model – who has two children from her first two marriages – while Rohan has two children from his first marriage to Geraldine Khawly and five more with singer Lauryn Hill.

She told Brazil's Veja magazine: 'Rohan told me we have to return to the roots so the marriage will last forever.'
Rohan, who runs the Marley Coffee company, met Isabeli shortly after he separated from Lauryn last year following the revelation that she was expecting a child with another man.
Isabeli's mother Maribel, has admitted concerns about the wedding plans.
She said: 'I think everything is happening too fast but everything has a different rhythm with Isabeli.'
It has also been claimed the couple 'see each other very little' because Isabeli continues to live in Sao Paulo, Brazil while Rohan lives in New York.

Isabeli, who was named one of the world's top earning models by Forbes in 2008, also made headlines earlier this month when she appeared in an H&M swimwear ad with heavily darkened skin.
It was slammed by doctors who believe that impressionable young people may try to emulate the look with tanning beds and prolonged exposure to the sun, putting themselves at risk of skin cancer.
