Sam Faiers sparked engagement rumors after sharing a photo of her wearing a diamond on her ring finger.

The TOWIE star, 32, enjoyed a lavish trip to Dubai with her longtime boyfriend and father-of-three Paul Knightley.

And walking closer to her pal in an elevator, Sam beamed from ear to ear showing off her new piece of jewelry.

Sharing the snap to his Instagram on Thursday, Sam showed off her new diamond ring while taking a selfie.

While Sam was seen sporting a gorgeous summer midi, Paul threw on a light gray shirt top and black jeans, which he paired with a classic pair of suede loafers.

They both smiled as Paul hugged Sam from behind. She captioned the photo, saying, “He’s my best friend.”

Sam and Paul started dating in 2014 and share three children together: Paul, seven, Rosie, five, and Edward, eight months.

Last year, Sam opened up about the pressures of marriage with his sister Billie on his podcast, The Sam & Billie Show.

She said: “We’ve been under a lot of pressure from people who watch our show and people are asking ‘why aren’t you married yet, when is that going to happen?

“I know we are going to get married – but I am so grateful that we have everything to look forward to and in our relationship we have done the hardest part (having children). It is a big challenge and a change for a couple.

“I know it’s not the right or the right way to do it, but it doesn’t matter. But we did the hardest part and I hope the marriage will be successful and last forever!

“But I can’t wait to have my three kids at the wedding, so I’m grateful it turned out that way. The more pressure we are on, the more Paul moves away. And did you know that 42% of marriages end in divorce!

Fans began commenting on the TOWIE star’s Instagram post amid rumors of a potential engagement.

Fans began commenting on the TOWIE star’s Instagram post amid rumors of a possible engagement.

“Big piece of bling on that ring finger!!” one said.

A second added: “Is that an engagement ring I see?!”

‘Congratulations beautiful ring,’ said another.

As fans can’t wait to find out more, one pointed out that she’s worn this ring before.

Previously, Sam was engaged to Joey Essex, who proposed to her on TOWIE.

Sam’s rep has been contacted for comment.

It comes after Sam revealed she hopes to return to TV screens with a new and different style of showmanship.

The reality star has previously been on TOWIE as well as Celebrity Big Brother and had her own show The Baby Diaries as well as Sam and Billie: The Mummy Diaries.

But now Sam hopes to make her way into the world of documentaries, breaking away from reality TV shows.

She told a fan on Instagram Stories that she wanted to tackle more impactful issues.

Sam said: “I’ve always wanted to do more of a documentary style, about a really big world crisis reality that isn’t really talked about publicly.

“For example, human trafficking and child exploitation.”

The star is also keen to work alongside her sister Billie and mother Suzanne Wells again.

It comes after Sam complained she ‘just can’t win’ after receiving backlash for grumbling about her ‘exhausting’ holiday in Abu Dhabi and her ‘difficult’ business class flight home .

The influencer spent a week in the United Arab Emirates on a family vacation with her sister Billie and mother Suzie on a PR holiday to advertise the country through her social media posts.

And after being called ‘deaf’ after sharing her struggles on the way home, Sam has now moaned that she ‘can’t win’, while insisting her job as an influencer is ‘ 24/7 work.”

The former TOWIE star aired her grievances about her and Billie’s podcast, The Sam & Billie Show, stating that since thefts were good she had to post about it, but instead focused on the difficulties of traveling with children – especially one who is teething.

She said, ‘It’s like, are you kidding me? Like yes, I’ve flown for business a few times, but it’s not every time I fly for business. Like come on, it’s like once in a blue moon because that was part of the job.

She continued: ‘You just can’t win, I had to post the theft as it was part of the job we were there to do with the Tourist Board.

“And then I didn’t want to talk about it as business because I thought I’m just not like that to brag about business class seats. So I thought oh, you know, I’m going to talk about the fact that I haven’t sat down for a second.

The reality star told how she had hoped her followers would ‘identify’ with her struggles of traveling with young children and admire her ‘honesty’, however, she was exasperated when she didn’t get the answer she expected.

She said on the podcast: “I really can’t bother to explain myself but it was like you know some people were commenting and saying things like ‘Oh look at you showing off in your flight in business class.

“Which I wasn’t by the way, and I was talking about Edward’s teeth,” before adding again, “You just can’t win.”

Older sister Billie, 33, then stepped up to defend her, interjecting: “It’s frustrating because it’s like, I feel like I’ve worked really hard, like you guys, to get what we have and do what we do, we worked hard for it.

“We didn’t sit around twiddling our thumbs.”

While Sam was then quick to insist, “It’s 24/7 work.”

Billie then noted that the siblings were just “normal girls” who should be allowed to “celebrate” their successes, adding, “We juggle and it’s juggling and sometimes a struggle.”

The fury began when after sharing a selfie cradling her nine-month-old son Edward in first-class seats, she pointed out how ‘difficult’ it had been for her and partner Paul Knightley to go on holiday with their children.

She began: “The truth is, going on holiday with young children is hard, especially with a crawling and teething baby.”

Sam continued: “We had a wonderful time in the sun, swimming every day, exploring, sightseeing and eating lots of ice cream, but it’s exhausting, remember no one said it was easy.”

“As for the flight home, Edward slept maybe 1 in 7.5 hours safe to say I was doing everything I could to entertain him without crying.”

She then thanked the “accommodating and kind” Etihad Airways staff who helped her when she felt “embarrassed” about flying with a baby.

Yet the post immediately riled her followers who were quick to point out that the post sounded tone deaf as many grappled with a cost of living crisis.
