David Hasselhoff has proposed to his girlfriend Hayley Roberts five times since they began dating earlier this year – but he’s adamant his romantic moments are pranks.
The former Baywatch star met the blonde in her native Cardiff, Wales while he was in the city filming for Britain’s Got Talent in April.
Hasselhoff has since engineered a series of bizarre proposals, including popping the question during a bungee jump and while the couple swam in shark-infested waters – but he insists he was joking every time.
Hasselhoff tells Britain’s Hello! magazine, “If she had said yes I would probably have choked. It started off as a bit of fun between us, but I put something on Twitter and it went all over the world, so it’s become a bit of a joke.”
Roberts adds, “I honestly believe he would go into shock if I said yes because I don’t think his proposals have been serious. If he was genuine about it, he’d plan something really romantic and get me a ring, not do it in a crazy way.”
