Speaking to the Daily Mail, a source said: "James has totally fallen for Stella and she adores him too. That's why she was very keen for him to meet her family and go official with how she feels.
"James and Stella both lead busy lives, but they are keen to spend as much time as possible with one another and are planning a holiday, probably to Dubai, before the end of the year."
The latest getaway comes after the pair enjoyed a trip to Marbella, Spain, where James, who is now in a band, often performs.
It is understood that the couple first met in Mykonos, Greece, where he was attending the wedding of a friend, with the source saying it was "love at first sight".
Despite a 16-year gap between the pair, a source told heat that their sizeable age difference "hasn't played a part in their romance so far".

James and Stella have been defended by Peter Andre who is also 16 years older than his partner.
"Age is a different thing to different people, on paper things can look a certain way but I think it depends how you are with the person," Andre said.
"I don't think I've ever felt an age gap between us and when you see us together you wouldn't feel there is."
