So much for the recent rumors about Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy splitting up as a romantic item. Golf champ McIlroy and tennis star Wozniacki are engaged, according to Yahoo! News on Wednesday.
The sports power couple made their engagement public via Twitter on Tuesday night when they were in Australia bringing in the New Year. Wozniacki messaged first by saying happy New Year to everyone, and following with the statement: “Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! I said YES!!!” Moments later McIlroy messaged his happy New Year to everyone and followed his greeting with, “I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014.” The hashtag told the story as he messaged #SheSaidYes!!
The messages included three photos in a collage which showed the bride-to-be’s wedding ring, a photo of the fireworks over Sydney Harbor, and a photo of the two.
They are currently in Sydney as Wozniacki prepares for the Australian Open. Their relationship began three years ago after McIlroy championed his first major golf outing in the U.S. Open at Congressional.
