Australian cricket captain Steve Smith has announced his engagement to long-time love Dani Willis.
The 28-year-old proposed to his girlfriend atop an observation deck in New York City on Wednesday, sharing the exciting news with his fans via Instagram.
The pair began dating five years ago after meeting at a bar during the first season of the Big Bash League during the summer of 2011.
In an interview with Fairfax Media, the skipper couldn’t help but gush about the 26-year-old law student.
“She’s always there for me when I’m around,” he told the publication back in 2014.
“She always gives me good advice, and tells me the truth. It’s nice that you have some honest feedback to come home to all the time.”
“She’s been terrific for me over the last few years,” he added.
The couple are currently enjoying a round-the-world holiday together, following Australia’s early exit from the Champions Trophy in England.
Since embarking on the trip they have been active on social media, frequently posting loved up pics of each other and their travels.
