AFTER months of speculation, Liv Tyler has confirmed she is engaged to Dave Gardner.

The Hollywood actress posted a photo of herself with Dave, who was once married to Skelmersdale actress Davinia Taylor, with the words: “Crazy about my man! Sweet sweet daddy, friend, fiance.”

The loved-up pair are in awe of their nine-month-old son Sailor and Liv has spoken warmly of his godfather, Dave’s best mate David Beckham.

She said: “He’s very sweet and he gives good presents.

“He’s a real gentleman, he’s a very elegant person, so very sweet.... He loves being a father.”

She also spoke about the moment when she gave birth to Sailor, saying that whilst Dave, 40, was stuck on a plane, her dad, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, was by her side and cut the umbilical cord.

And speaking of his name, Liv revealed: “It took a minute to figure out what his name was going to be but one of my favourite movies is Wild At Heart, the David Lynch movie, and the characters are Sailor and Lula.”

Dave and Liv were introduced to each other by mutual pal Kate Moss last September.

As Liv lives in America, and Dave’s older son, whom he fathered with former Hollyoaks actress Davinia, is still in the UK, he splits his time between the two countries. Liv also has an older son, Milo, with former husband Royston Langdon.

She juggles motherhood with filming her hit show The Leftovers.
