- Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has proposed to his childhood sweetheart Tamara Tia
- The pair started dating Tamara four years ago before Gomez move from Charlton to Liverpool
- Gomez popped the question during Tamara's 22nd birthday anniversary
Recuperating Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to marry childhood sweetheart Tamara Tia after proposing to her with a stunning diamond ring.
The 21-year-old Gomez, who started dating Tamara four years ago before his switch from Charlton to Liverpool, popped up the big question during Tamara's 22nd birthday anniversary, with his partner accepted before splashing her diamond ring on Instagram.
"27.12.18... A day I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” She wrote in an accompanying message.
"The love of my life asked me to marry him... There aren’t enough words to describe the feeling I right now. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you,” Tamara added.
Gomez revealed earlier in the year how he met Tamara on the bus while returning school- before helping him settle at Anfield after arriving from Charlton in 2015.
"I didn’t have much chat, I was quite quiet. But it was all about Blackberry messenger back then. I started messaging and talking and we got to know each other," he was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
"Tamara stayed the first night but was at university in London. She would come up every weekend but, that apart, I was by myself,” Gomez added.
Hopefully, Liverpool's title challenge and unbeaten run in the English topflight will still be intact by the time Gomez returns to action, with Saturday's 5-1 win over Arsenal leaving them nine points clear at the top of the log.
