Strictly Come Dancing star Greg Rutherford proposes to girlfriend Susie Verrill

And she said yes!

Greg Rutherford, former Strictly Come Dancing star and Olympic athlete, has proposed to his girlfriend, Susie Verrill – and she's now his fiancée.

Greg, 32, sounded thrilled as he announced the news to his 150,000 followers, explaining that he'd popped the question during a hike in Arizona.

And the bride-to-be, 31, looked pretty chuffed, too, as she showed off her new band, complete with a shiny (and probably very expensive) stone...

Alongside a picture of writer Susie displaying her ring, Greg told his followers: "Came to Phoenix, got myself a fiancée. Susie Verrill said yes."

A second photo showed a close-up of Susie's hand, giving fans a better look at the twinkly diamond inside the ring.

And some of those fans were quickly showering the happy couple with love and congratulations.

One wrote: "Omg you guys ARE THE BEST. Cannot wait to follow this wedding planning."

All those crowds and I'm sure she makes your heart beat the hardest!

Greg met Susie, a former features editor of Look magazine, back in 2012. The couple now have two sons, four-year-old Milo and and Rex, one.

Earlier this year, Susie spoke candidly about her three-month battle with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) – an extreme form of morning sickness – while pregnant with Rex.

She told her Instagram followers: "I didn't leave my room unless I needed a scan or to be put on a drip.

"This is a condition which leaves you unable to look at certain colours, move a matter of inches, smell the smallest of smells; it robs you of everything.

"I remember saying to my mum that all I wanted was the chance to 'be'... without feeling like I had norovirus x 3.

"Nothing crazy, just to breathe, sit, sleep without vomiting up the tiny amount of fluid I might have got down that day."
