  • Despite a string of rows, friends say that Hince has been a stabilising influence for Moss.

So far, her love life has brought her mostly heartache and headlines.

But Kate Moss may finally be heading for domestic bliss after her boyfriend, Kills guitarist Jamie Hince, proposed.

Hince, 40, flew out to meet Moss last week while she was working in Mustique in the West Indies. He proposed on Saturday, her 36th birthday, using a diamond ring chosen with the help of her boss and friend, Topshop tycoon Philip Green.

The couple have had a fiery romance since meeting in September 2007, just three months after Moss finished a turbulent two-year relationship with Pete Doherty. They were introduced by mutual friend Sadie Frost backstage at a Kills gig.

A friend said of the proposal: "Kate was stunned, Jamie called her up and told her not to come home. He said he was flying out to Mustique.

"He had carefully picked a ring and chose her birthday to propose. It was the first time they had been alone together in quite a while and it was extremely emotional.

"Kate and Jamie are in a very good place, they already live together and this is the next step to settling down for good."

Despite a string of rows, friends say that Hince has been a stabilising influence for Moss. He is said to get on well with Lila Grace, her eight-year-old daughter by ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack.
