Cambodian singer and comedian Sam Polida caused a double showbiz shock this week after announcing her sudden engagement two days ago to a rich military policeman and her plan to walk down the aisle next month.

The 37- year-old singer, famous for her dirty jokes, said she had known her fiancé, Svay Sisotha, for many years, but it was only in the past couple of months that she had felt sure he was Mr Right.

The once-divorced singer said: “I knew my fiancé very well before I decided to marry him. It’s not a case of love at first sight.”

Sam Polida believes her fiancé truly loves her for who she is.

He also cherishes her two children from her first marriage. With a big diamond ring sparkling on her finger, Sam Polida said: “We don’t want to drag it out any longer. We’ll get married on June 12.”
