CAPRICE STRIKES GOLD; It must be love as model, 28, agrees to wed oil heir, 21..oh, and he's worth pounds 4bn.
SUPERMODEL Caprice is to marry a fabulously rich student who is only 21 years old.
Alexander Davis, heir to a pounds 4billion oil tycoon, proposed to former Wonderbra girl Caprice, 28, in front of his stunned family and friends at his 21st birthday party last week.
Model-turned-Hollywood actress Caprice - previously linked to a string of stars including former England soccer captain Tony Adams, rocker Rod Stewart, actor Ed Burns, George Best's son Calum and even Prince Andrew - burst into tears as she said "Yes".
Alexander's grandfather Martin Davis is the 31st richest man in America. He once owned the 20th Century Fox movie studios and has hosted dinners for former President Bill Clinton.
One party-goer said: "It was so sweet. Alexander told everyone that now he was 21 the best birthday present he could hope for would be for Caprice to become his wife. She's normally so composed, but couldn't help crying as she said yes."
Alexander then slipped on to Caprice's finger a diamond engagement ring which used to belong to her own grandmother. The super-rich student had secretly arranged with her family to have pounds 7,000 worth of diamonds added to the band.
The surprise came as Alexander celebrated his birthday in a private room at Trader Vic's restaurant in Hollywood's Beverly Hilton Hotel. Guests included former Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannon Doherty.
Caprice has been coy about her 10-month romance - speaking about the relationship just once, when she said: "I have known him for years and he's my best friend. We get on so well and he supports me massively in everything I do. We are taking things slowly. This is one I don't want to mess up."
Since becoming an overnight sensation after appearing in a revealing dress at the National TV Awards five years ago, Caprice has branched out into business and launched a range of underwear and ceramic hair straighteners.
After making an appearance in the West End musical Rent, she landed a pounds 1.2million two-movie deal. She started filming the first - Hollywood Flies - earlier this month alongside Vinnie Jones and American star Brad Renfro.
She and Alexander are not expected to marry until he has finished his business studies course in Chicago.
A friend said: "Alex has promised his family he will wait until he graduated from college before getting married.
"They were concerned he wouldn't finish school if the wedding went ahead now."
