According to Reuters, the categorically fluid 34-year old singer-activist Sinéad O’Connor is engaged to marry 27-year-old journalist Nick Sommerlad. O’Connor has two children from previous relationships. Although no firm date has been set, Sommerlad says, “Yes, we are getting married.... I am delighted, and so is she.” Last year’s announcement by O’Connor that she was a lesbian was later written off to confusion on the part of the iconoclastic performer.
