The 'Call My Name' singer's boyfriend is said to be keen to pop the question to Cheryl sometime soon.

Cheryl Cole's boyfriend Tre Holloway was allegedly planning to propose to the 'Call My Name' star this Christmas until her mum warned him it was too soon for an engagement.

The 'Under The Sun' singer and dancer Tre have been dating for around six months, after going public with the romance last summer, and Tre has reportedly asked Cheryl's mum Joan Callaghan for her blessing for them to wed.

"Tre called her and said he wanted to propose to Cheryl when they are in America with his parents," a source close to the couple revealed to The Sun this week. "He wanted to do it on Christmas Day, but Joan refused to give her blessing."

"She's warming to Tre but there's no way she's going to let another man take Cheryl down the aisle so quickly," they explained. "Tre's got his work cut out if he thinks he can get around Joan so soon."

The couple have been spotted out regularly ever since going public with their relationship, most recently this past Saturday (15th December) when they dined out after supporting Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh on Strictly Come Dancing.

Last week Cheryl officially denied the recent claims she is set to rejoin The X Factor UK judging panel in 2013, promising it is a "definite no" to the rumours.

Cheryl Cole will join her Girls Aloud bandmates in early 2013 to embark on a new reunion tour in support of their latest compilation 'Ten - The Hits'.
