London, December 18 (ANI): Cheryl Cole's mum has ruined plans by the singer's boyfriend to propose on Christmas Day.
Tre Holloway, 27, asked Joan Callaghan for her daughter's hand in marriage and said he wanted to pop the question during a US trip, the Sun reported.
But Joan, who's still fiercely protective of Cheryl after her disastrous marriage to footie Ashley Cole, told the American dancer that it was too soon.
"Tre called her and said he wanted to propose to Cheryl when they are in America with his parents. He wanted to do it on Christmas Day, but Joan refused to give her blessing," a source told the publication.
"She's warming to Tre but there's no way she's going to let another man take Cheryl down the aisle so quickly.
"Tre's got his work cut out if he thinks he can get around Joan so soon," the source added. (ANI)
