It's official: Caroline Wozniacki and Rory Mcllroy are ready for marriage! The Danish tennis player, 23, and the Northern Irish golfer, 24, got engaged on New Year's Eve in Sydney, Australia, where the bride-to-be is preparing for the upcoming Australian Open in Melbourne.
Wozniacki broke the engagement news via Twitter by sharing a collage of three pictures: her engagement ring, fireworks over the Sydney Harbor and a picture of herself with Mcllroy. "Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! ... I said YES!!!!" she wrote in the photo caption.
Minutes later, Mcllroy shared the same collage on the social networking site: "Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!"
The future spouses began dating in the summer of 2011, shortly after McIlroy won his first major title with a record-setting performance in the U.S. Open at Congressional. The power couple confirmed they were dating a few months later and were falsely rumored to have broken up in 2013.
Pro golfers Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell were among the first to congratulate McIlroy on his engagement via Twitter. "Congrats Rory! Great start to the new year!" Francesco Molinari tweeted.
