But Ant’s newfound happiness “doesn’t affect” his ex as she’s also moved on emotionally.
“The engagement wasn’t a shock for Lisa,” an insider told New magazine.
“She thought it would be the next step and she was actually surprised they hadn’t got engaged before now.”
The source continued: “She thinks Ant is a different person. He’s not the same Ant that she knew and was in love with, it’s someone very different.

“The way he treated her killed all the love she had for him. They were together from a really young age and it’s like they’re both different people now.
“She wishes them well and said it doesn’t affect her. The love she had for him died a long time ago.”

News of the engagement comes three years after the popular Geordie, 45, split from his wife of 11 years, Lisa.
A friend told The Sun: “Ant has been planning this for some time – but wanted to make sure the moment was just right.
“2020 has been a pretty torrid year for everybody, and this is the happy news that all their friends and family have been waiting for.
“Both Amzie and Ant adore Christmas, and get really into it every year, so Ant decided to pop the question on Christmas Eve.

“He’s a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie’s family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said ‘yes’ straight away.”
“Obviously getting engaged in the midst of a pandemic isn’t ideal when it comes to planning a wedding… at the moment a summer ceremony is looking extremely unlikely, so it may well be a 2022 affair.”
Ant’s long-term co-star, Dec, and his wife Ali are understood to be “thrilled” for the couple, with the 45-year-old expected to act as Best Man when they wed.
A spokesman confirmed the engagement, adding: “Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting.”

The presenter has known personal assistant Anne-Marie, 43, for several years.
The pretty PA worked with Dec’s agent wife at the same London-based management company, before she started to work for Ant on a full-time basis.
The mum of two supported Ant as he battled a prescription drug problem following complications with knee surgery.
During a bushtucker trial involving Radio 1 presenter Jordan North, Ant told viewers that being at home with Anne-Marie was his “happy place”.
It came after Dec claimed his was Newcastle’s St James’ Park.
Last year Ant and Anne Marie moved in together, buying a £6mn house in south-west London.
