McIlroy & Wozniacki Start New Year with Engagement Announcement

Rory McIlroy and tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki are engaged, the couple announced via Twitter.

Wozniacki wrote on her official Twitter page: “Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! … I said YES!!!!”

McIlroy then weighed in by adding: “Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!”

The couple have been together for more than two years, and despite strong rumours they had parted company, it now looks as though they are happy with one another.

In 2011, McIlroy spoke fondly of his now-fiancé, saying: “We have so much in common. We’re pretty much in the same position at a young age and we can talk about things that probably a lot of 21-, 22-year-olds can’t talk about. It’s nice.”
