For anyone who thought Madonna's relationship with Jesus Luz wouldn't last, the couple are about to take a huge step together.
The queen of pop is preparing to visit Brazil, where she will meet her model love's parents, Cristiane Regina da Silva and Luis Heitor Pinto da Luz.
"She is slightly on edge. But an engagement could be on the cards,” a friend of Jesus reveals.
"Madonna really does love and need Jesus - and she does not hold all the power in their relationship."
"He wants to marry and be taken seriously. She doesn't want to lose Jesus and so the visit to his parents is her way of saying she will make this relationship permanent."
Madonna, who has been dating the Brazilian since July last year, has apparently told friends that a wedding is definitely "on the table".
