Sienna Miller’s sister Savannah has announced her engagement to a wealthy aristocrat Jim Whewell – the brother-in-law of her ex-husband’s girlfriend. 

The fashion designer, 42, shared sweet photo to Instagram with her fiancé – who is heir to the 800-acre Wyresdale Park Estate in Lancaster.   

‘I didn’t think this Christmas could get any more special. Yet, in classic magic Jim fashion, I received the best gift I could ever have wished for. 

‘The promise of a life filled with love and joy and this man,’ she wrote next to snaps showing a dazzling diamond ring.

Savannah was previously married Bushcraft teacher Nick Skinner, they separated in 2018. 

In 2020, Mail on Sunday revealed Nick’s aristocratic best friend Ruth Guise, 49, is dating Savannah’s ex Nick. To make things even more complicated, Ruth is the sister-in-law of Jim.   

Savannah explained: ‘We [Nick and I] separated in February 2018 – neither of them needed to ask my permission to get together. As always, the wellbeing of the children is all of our priority.’

Savannah and Nick share children  Moses, 16, Lyra, 13, and Bali, nine. She is also step-mother Java, 26.

Savannah was previously married Bushcraft teacher Nick Skinner, they separated in 2018.

It seems the relationship between her and Jim has gone from strength to strength during lockdown at Savannah’s country house in the Cotswolds, with Jim getting involved in home-schooling, helping one of Savannah’s three children with a science project.

She told You Magazine in Junes: ‘The way things have worked out [with their father’s new relationship] is wonderful for the children because they have essentially only got one other family to deal with. 

‘We [the four adults and the children] were a bubble during lockdown, and we were all together for Christmas and Easter. When a marriage comes to an end you can throw a bomb under the bus, or you can hold up your hands and say, “We’ve done everything we can and now we want to retain a healthy relationship for our children.”’

‘I didn’t think this Christmas could get any more special. Yet, in classic magic Jim fashion, I received the best gift I could ever have wished for. ‘The promise of a life filled with love and joy and this man,’ she wrote next to snaps showing a dazzling diamond ring.

In 2007, she and her sister Sienna (pictured) launched a fashion label, which they named Twenty8Twelve after Sienna’s birthdate.

Savannah graduated from London’s Central Saint Martins art college in 2004 with first-class honours, while pregnant with Moses and already stepmother to Nik’s son Java, then eight.

 Somehow finding time to work for Alexander McQueen, Anya Hindmarch and Matthew Williamson along the way, she confesses that before meeting Nik (a bushcraft teacher from Devon) she hadn’t had much time for relationships. ‘I didn’t really have an adult life before I became a mum. We just always had a child with us. That was our reality.’

In 2007, she and her sister Sienna launched a fashion label, which they named Twenty8Twelve after Sienna’s birthdate.

Softly spoken with impeccable manners, Jim runs a lucrative wedding business from his family seat, promoting trendy eco-weddings where guests stay in yurts.

An insider previously told the Mail: ‘Sav and Nick just fell out of love. Their relationship was on the rocks for a long time before they separated but they are the best of friends now.’

Free-spirited mother-of-one Ruth is the daughter of Sir Christopher Guise, and, like Savannah, runs her own fashion label.

Nick once escaped the clutches of Costa Rican cult and now enjoys what friends describe as an alternative lifestyle. 

Following the announcement of their  Christmas engagement, many well-heeled friends rushed to the comments to congratulate the couple.
