Weller met Andrews while she was singing backing vocals on his 2008 No. 1 album '22 Dreams.' She subsequently went on to tour with him. They moved in together after Weller's previous relationship with Samantha Stock, his partner of 13 years, ended just before Christmas 2008.
Weller's spokesperson did not make any comment about the apparently impending nuptials. If wedding bells are indeed on the cards, it wouldn't be the first time Weller has married a fellow musician. In 1988, he wed D.C. Lee, backing singer in the Style Council. They split in 1994.
The former Jam frontman, who will be 52 in May, is undeterred by the 27-year age gap between himself and 24-year-old Andrews.
"It's funny to think that after all these years I've finally met my soulmate. All I can say is that I am very, very much in love," he was quoted on the Web site, adding, "Because she's so much younger than me, [when the press found out it] was all, 'It's a midlife crisis; Wrinkly Rocker; Mutton dressed up as ram; Old enough to be her Modfather.' But it isn't like that. We're really in love and that's that."
Meanwhile, Weller's 10th solo album, 'Wake Up the Nation,' already hailed by Q magazine as "his solo masterpiece," is released on Monday, April 19.
