Amy Winehouse was secretly engaged
AMY Winehouse and boyfriend Reg Traviss secretly got engaged weeks before her death.
Reg, 35, gave ecstatic singer Amy, 27, a diamond ring.
And she agreed to marry Reg without a moment`s hesitation - because she so desperately wanted to put her wild lifestyle behind her.
A source said: "Reg asked Amy and of course she said `Yes`. She loved him.
"She wanted nothing more than to be his wife and to start a family with him. She wanted to get rid of her demons so badly.
"They openly said they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They both thought the absolute world of each other."
Film director Reg, 35, gave her a diamond ring during an emotional heart-to-heart about their future.
The couple, who had been together for two years, planned to marry next year.
The chance to fulfil her dream of having a family had made Amy determined to banish the alcohol and drugs that had blighted her life.
A source said: "Amy spent a week in rehab in June and told loved ones afterwards she was determined to quit booze.
"She was planning her future with Reg and that was playing a huge part in her thinking.
"Amy was adamant about sorting herself out. Reg`s proposal made her even more determined.
"She didn`t want to carry on the way she was."
Since Grammy-winning singer Amy was found dead in her home in Camden, North London, Reg has been in mourning with her dad Mitch and mum Janis.
The source added: "Reg has been with the family every day since. It was clear to see their relationship was genuine.
"It has made the last week all the more painful for Reg. He wanted to spend the rest of his life with her."
Mitch, 60, already thought of Reg as a son-in-law. At her funeral last week he said: "Amy found love with Reg.
"He helped her with her problems and Amy was looking forward to their future together.
"She was the happiest she has been for years."
Days after Amy died, an ashen-faced Reg told of his shock.
He said: "She had been full of life. I`ve lost my darling who I loved very much."
