Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock announced her engagement to footballer boyfriend Andre Gray as the pair celebrated their fourth anniversary on Thursday.
It was the Watford FC footballer who revealed the news, sharing a photo of the beaming pair on his Instagram with Leigh-Anne flashing her new diamond ring.
Accompanied by a ring emoji and a heart, he captioned the picture, “Let the caption speak for itself this time. Hasta la muerte.”
In a second photo, Andre showed the exact moment of his proposal as he got down on one knee in a fairylight-lit garden in front of Leigh-Anne, who looked overcome with emotion.
Only a few hours earlier, Leigh-Anne had posted a gushing anniversary message to Andre.
“Happy Anniversary baby… how has 4 years gone so fast! All I know is I’m another year more crazy about you. I couldn’t love you harder if I tried,” she wrote, next to a photo of the two of them on a paradise beach at sunset.
Leigh-Anne hasn’t yet posted about the engagement, but her bandmates have been sharing their congratulations on Andre’s post.
Fellow Little Mixer Jesy Nelson was one of the first to respond, commenting, “Congratulations you beauties.”
The post has been flooded with well wishes from famous footballers too, including John Terry, Gerard Deulofeu and Andre Carrillo.
The talented pair, who are both 28 years old, started dating in 2016.
Leigh-Anne recently revealed she was hoping for a proposal from her Watford strike beau during an Instagram Live with her fans.
“I really hope so. I’m just waiting, you know. I’m waiting … patiently,” she said.
In a recent radio interview, Leigh-Anne revealed she knew the proposal was coming and had already started planning a summer wedding this year, but the Coronavirus lockdown had put a dampener on their plans
“The wedding is probably not going to happen now because we can’t go anywhere.
“He’s probably not going to [want to] do it in the house. So it looks like my dream is officially over.
“I’ve not really been planning it but every girl has got the idea of what they want, we’ll see, it is a dream of mine,” she said.
Congratulations Leigh-Anne and Andre!
