Made in Chelsea's Oliver Proudlock Reveals Engagement to Model Emma Louise Connolly

by helen@hitched

Made in Chelsea star Oliver Proudlock revealed he is engaged to his model girlfriend Emma Louise Connolly.

He proposed to his long-term partner in the Swedish city of Gothenburg during a trip to mark their four year anniversary.

The 29-year-old fashion designer announced the news on Instagram with a picture of Emma showing off her beautiful - and humongous - ring.

He wrote, "SHE SAID YES!!! SHE IS MAKING AN HONEST MAN OF ME. GREATEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE. #opxec #engaged #4yearanniversary"

Emma, 26, shared the same image, captioning it, "and then I said yes. and split my jeans from excitement."

Just before they announced their engagement, Proudlock posted a gushing message on his Twitter feed hinting at their big news.

"To the best 4 years of my life, and to many more to come. Love you more than I could ever comprehend," he wrote.

Model Emma was much less reserved on her Instagram Stories once they announced the news, sharing multiple videos of her ring and her "hubby to be".

Proudlock found fame in 2011 when he joined the cast of reality TV show Made in Chelsea as a friend of Jamie Laing.

He famously dated some of the show's most eligible females, including Caggie Dunlop and Lucy Watson.

Emma and Proudlock met in 2014 but the couple chose to not show their relationship on-screen.

Speaking about why Emma has chosen not to be on Made in Chelsea, he said, "She has her own career and focus. It doesn’t make sense [for her to be on the show]."

Eton-educated Proudlock quit the show in 2016 to focus on his fashion line Serge DeNimes, but recently returned.

It's a sweet gesture that Proudlock chose Gothenburg to propose as it is the home town of his mother, Lena.

We bet it'll be one stylish wedding! What do you think of his proposal - and that giant ring?! Let us know in the comments.
