Gareth Bale and his long-time girlfriend, Emma got engaged over the weekend after dating since high school.
The 27-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on Saturday, made the announcement on Twitter.
The couple who are both from Cardiff and met at Whitchurch High School in the Welsh capital, have two daughters together - Alba Violet and Nava Valentina.
The Welshman's stellar career has only gone one way since he joined Madrid, his move to Spain alongside his young family catapulting him into one of the world's best players.
Bale, the world's most expensive footballer at £85m, proved just how good he is in France this summer, helping huge underdogs Wales into the last four of Euro 2016 with a series of superb individual performances.
