Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki are getting married! The golfer popped the question to the tennis star on New Year’s Eve and she said yes.
Quite the ring she got out of the deal, too …
"Happy New Year everyone!" the two-time major champion Tweeted. "I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!
So much for the duo being on the rocks.
Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy, collectively one of sports’ higher-profile couples, have endured a lot of scrutiny since they first got together.
Unquestionably one of the best golfers in the world and with the expectations that go with that, Northern Ireland native Rory, 24, had a down year in 2013.
Many associated this with his relationship with Caroline, 23, the pride of Denmark who once ranked number one in the world in tennis for 67 straight weeks.
Some analysts not only blamed the romance for Rory’s slump after an astounding 2012, but implied that he can’t play his best and be with a high-profile athlete.
The next big-time victory will silence all of that talk from the bored media, of course, but said victory has yet to materialize for either half of Wozzilroy.
Neither enjoyed the level of athletic success last season that was on par with their previous performances, but they sure were cute and happy.
Congratulations to the adorable couple on their engagement and we wish them both the best of luck in their respective sports as 2014 gets underway …
