It looks like we might need to grab our fascinators and confetti out of the loft because Andy Murray has FINALLY popped the question and gotten ENGAGED to girlfriend of nine years, Kim Sears!
After winning Wimbledon last year, Andy had the pressure of ten sumo wrestlers on his shoulders over whether he would get down on one knee or not, and after years of speculation he’s finally taken the plunge.
CUTE COUPLE KLAXON.
Although sadly, there’s not a Benedict Cumberbatch-esque newspaper ad in sight, which is a touch disappointing. But we love ‘em anyway.
According to reports, the 27-year-old popped the question with one ma-hoo-sive diamond ring last week, and luckily for just about everyone, she immediately said UH-HUH HONEY.
Otherwise known as YES PLEASE THANK YOU.
Andy is a pretty private person, so it comes as no surprise that the two were hoping to keep the engagement secret for a little while longer. Oops.
A source told Mirror Online: “Andy spent ages thinking about the ring, he chose the design himself and picked it up last week. He then proposed on Wednesday.
“Kim said ‘yes’ immediately. They are completely besotted with each other and have been there for each other through thick and thin.
“They are just going to enjoy themselves before they start planning their big day.”
Andy hasn’t mentioned his big news on Twitter at all, instead opting to ask followers for tips on things to do during his first ever trip to the Philippines. Naturally.
It’s reported that he hasn’t even told some close members of his family – except his mum, Judy Murray, of course.
Although this was her only reaction on Twitter, she’s been flooded with congratulatory messages and is said to be properly excited with the news.
Err, YEAH. Even we’re more excited than we should be and we’re not even related to Andy.
Judging by his autobiography Seventy-Seven: My Road to Wimbledon Glory last year, we probably should’ve seen this one coming, as he said: “I would like to start a family and try to be a good father.
“That’s important to me. It’s something that I’m starting to think about because Kim and I have been together for eight years.”
So, baby Murrays next then yeah?
massive CONGRATS TO ANDY AND KIM ONCE AGAIN. God love ya <3
