McIlroy and Wozniacki to tie the knot
Rory McIlroy and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki both took to Twitter last night to confirm their engagement.
The pair, who rang in the new year in Australia, confirmed the news in simultaneous posts on their Twitter accounts.
They each posted a picture of a diamond ring on Wozniacki’s hand next to an image of fireworks over Sydney Harbour Bridge.
McIlroy added the message: “Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!”
Wozniacki wrote: “Rory and I started 2014 with a bang!…I said YES!!!!”
McIlroy and Wozniacki have been together since 2011, and have been the target of frequent break-up rumours – much to their own frustration.
