Ashley Hicks popped the question & Kata said yes!

A sharped eyed twitter friend of mine noticed the Cobra ring and comments on Ashley Hicks' Instagram page and alerted me to the news that Ashley Hicks, 51, has popped the question to Katalina Sharkey de Solis (Kata de Solis).   The engagement took place six days ago.  So far, no official announcement of the engagement has been made.

Kata's name is a bit pretentious.   She was born  Kathryn Anne Sharkey on December 31, 1981 in Texas, daughter of William Thomas Sharkey and Rosalie Solis.  Her parents live in Houston, Texas.

Kata, recently director of digital at Chanel, is now Managing Director at the ad agency Moving Image and Content, She is 33 years old and lives in the East Village.  She may be a native of Texas.


Ashley married Allegra Tondato in 1990, divorcing in 2010. They have two daughters, Angelica (1992) and Ambrosia (1997.)   He is a godson of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, a first cousin of Lady Pamela Hicks.
